Microsoft Silverlight VS Adobe Flash.
In September Microsoft has released its Silverlight version 1.0 rich media player. It was announced that several partners including World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Home Shopping Network and the TV show Entertainment Tonight will use Silverlight player to deliver the content to the users. Microsoft expects to have over 200 000 000 downloads by the middle of the year 2008.
Let's look at the situation that we have now. A month has passes and MLB.com, the official Major League Baseball site offers file downloads using Silverlight player. What about the rest of the interactive multimedia on this site? The rest of the content is supplied by Adobe Flash and that makes the competition between these two just hilarious.
Adobe CEO Bruce Chizen determines the companies that do not use Flash as "media companies that are being bought, paid and bribed to go to another solution".
At the same time Silverlight has two major advantages over Flash. They are video quality and the use of ???digital rights management (DRM) technology??? that content providers and advertisement developers highly value. Plus Microsoft offers affordable pricing and even provides some services for free, while Flash Media Server software is sold for $4,000+.
There is no winner yet and the battle still lasts.
