Web 2.0 A quick round up of various web-related news items. First up, a new open source product entitled the "Highgate media suite" will bring OGG video decoding to Silverlight. Microsoft have just joined the SVG working group (arguably 10 years late, but it's better than nothing). Adobe promise significant improvements in Flash 10.1, including Core Animation rendering on OS X and lowered CPU usage. Finally, CoperLicht--a WebGL JavaScript 3D engine (Quake in JS will be here one day)

I love Silverlight, I love C# and I love my beautiful Windows 7 and Office 2010. I won't touch anything fugly like HTML5 with a ten-foot pole.

I love media, I love programming languages, I love OSes and productivity apps. I love the technology landscape, not the specific implementations, because they come and go.

Are you joking? I also love C# (especially), Windows 7, and Office, but I despise Silverlight (when used for video). I wouldn't mind it being used for online games, where it is definitely superior to Flash, but you would have to be out of your mind to use it over HTML5 for video.

You would if you wanted smooth streaming (and that's what a lot of content providers want these days).

The HTML5 video tag can't do smooth streaming.
