Silverlight 4 named Best Rich Internet Application (RIA) Platform by InfoWorld

Some great news to share. Yesterday InfoWorld published “InfoWorld’s 2011 Technology of the Year Awards” in which Silverlight 4 has been named as the “Best Rich Internet Application (RIA) Platform”.

As InfoWorld writes (excerpt), see full slide here:

Right now, we favor Silverlight. In the two categories most important to decision makers -- developer tools and design integration -- Silverlight trumps Flash/AIR/Flex . The toolset in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 is demonstrably excellent, and Microsoft Expression Blend bridges the design-development gap much better than Adobe Flash Catalyst. For these reasons, companies like Netflix have chosen Silverlight as their RIA technology. We completely agree.

Congrats to the Silverlight team!
