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."

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

Maybe you should do some research first then.

It looks like a Flash interface people have been producing for years, it acts like a Flash interface people have been producing for years and it sounds like a Flash interface people have been producing for years.

All in all, a duck, is a duck, is a duck.

Well, what can Silverlight do that Flash, XUL and/or SVG cannot do - not to mention what can Flash, XUL and/or SVG do that Silverlight cannot do ;)

I mean, you must have made that research, right? ;)

XUL is a graphical interface format, nothing more. SVG is limited in what it does and doesn't have true 3d AFAIK.

Here's a good start on Flash vs. Silverlight: http://weblogs.asp.net/jezell/archive/2007/05/03/silverlight-vs-fla...
