Silverlight's Trojan Horse

Microsoft found the perfect way to get Silverlight out to more getting the Java guys to bundle it with their runtime.

Yes, the Bing Toolbar is powered by Silverlight. Personally, I think this is a great idea. After spending over a year learning Java, I realize exactly how much better the .NET Framework is for everyday development. With more penetration, perhaps more developers will see it as well.

Never attribute to malice what you can attribute to Sun's self-destructive behavior for client-side Java.
