Whatever happened to "WPF/E"?

You can stop calling it "WPF/E" now. This morning, Microsoft announces Microsoft Silverlight, a new cross-browser, cross-platform technology for interactive media and rich applications. This is the technology formerly codenamed "WPF/E".

I've been working on Silverlight features for a few months now and am excited about today's public announcement at the NAB Conference in Las Vegas, NV. At the conference, Microsoft will reveal it's brand and announce partner support for Silverlight. Then at the Mix 07 conference on April 30th, the company will unveil and discuss the breadth of the Silverlight developer and designer ecosystem.

We live in interesting times.
