This post on eWeek (via Slashdot) had me annoyed.
- It's a Ruby conference. "Microsoft is pushing a different scenario, known as Asynchronous Ruby and XML, or ARAX". Pushing isn't the word I would use, showing off that silverlight can host scripting languages is more likely.
- Silverlight supports lots of languages, in fact it supports CLR, .NET and hence a lot of other stuff. A nice overview is here and information about the DLR is here.
- Want to use Python with Silverlight in your browser, well go for it using IronPython. Oh wait is Microsoft pushing APAX now?
