So there is nothing technical about this post, but I found it interesting. I have been a big supporter of Microsoft Silverlight, but I do find it a bit frustrating when I find out they don’t use their own technologies internally. Check this post out, it points out how Microsoft uses Flash for their Bing videos rather than Silverlight!
Now, when you click on the video, you are taken to a Silverlight player where you can view the entire clip, but why the use of Flash for the preview? Why not Silverlight? What was the technical challenge that caused them to go with Flash?
