Microsoft Aims for Richer Web

Microsoft dialed into the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas and showed off Silverlight, a new tool for building rich interactive Web apps and for running TV-quality video in a browser.

The widespread perception is that Microsoft is way behind Google and other competitors when it comes to Web apps and Software as a Service. But as one of the founders of Redmond Developer News magazine, which covers Microsoft's development tools, I'm not so sure.

I'd argue that if you are trying to write these kinds of apps, no one has a deeper portfolio of tools than Microsoft.
