Internet & Networking "Microsoft has released a new showcase of its Silverlight web development frameworks, a graphical search engine called Tafiti. Tafiti, which means 'do research' in Swahili, is an experimental frontend to Microsoft's Live Search engine. It presents search options in three panes on the screen: the left pane is for entering search queries and switching between image, RSS, Web, and News, the middle pane contains the search results, and the right pane is used to 'dock' results using drag-and-drop for looking at later."

What he's talking about are those things combined.

Really?

and I don't think Silverlight offers anything that can't already be done with Flash or XUL or SVG.

The point is, Silverlight does do things all those don't do. Flash does a few things silverlight doesn't do as well. It's a little thing called "advantages" and "disadvanages". Competition is a good thing.
