    Silverlight 2.0 beta 1

    Silverlight is being touted by some as Microsoft’s ‘Flash killer’. Go to http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/resou...iles.aspx?v=2.0 and install the 2.0 beta. The with IE 6 or IE 7 go to http://memorabilia.hardrock.com. Cool stuff.

    Hi Joe,
    Still not quite sure what Silverlight does for me but I found you have to uninstall any older versions of Silverlight in order to install the beta.

    So I have it installed, guess I was expecting some startling, noticeable effects to be seen.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    I didn't have to uninstall anything. Did you go to the Hard Rock link?

    No, I went right to the MS site and when I tried to run it, that's when it said it detected an older version of Silverlight and to uninstall it first.
    As I said, I did the uninstall and was able to install the beta fine.

    Silverlight is like Flash in that you won't notice anything until you visit a site using it. While what is done at the Hard Rock site is nothing earth shattering the content and views are very cool particularly if you grew up listening to those artists.
