Microsoft Most websites glossed over this, but we didn't. Silverlight, once touted as Microsoft's answer to Adobe's Flash, has been retooled from its original purpose. Microsoft is betting big on HTML5 instead, turning Silverlight into the development platform for Windows Phone, and that's it. So... Silverlight is dead - long live Silerlight?

If I remember well, on my Athlon 3000+/1GB RAM/7800GT config, it was a bit heavy for video playback but still acceptable (~20-30% CPU on Ubuntu 9.04 vs 60+% on older releases).

On Mac, I heard that there were some major improvements for some Mac hardware using the "Gala" beta, too.
