Using Silverlight with an Apple Mac? Why? Give Expression Blend a try

Wow, can a Mac shop do silverlight development?  Is Expression Blend better than Flash?  Zoom over to the URL to read an older article about a Mac only shop that gave Silverlight a try.  http://expression.microsoft.com/en-us/ee662147

Now that Silverlight has improved since then, as well as the Expression Blend tool, you can give Expression Blend 4 via the no cost

What do you get?

The Windows Phone SDK includes the following

  • Windows Phone SDK 7.1 (RC)
  • Windows Phone Emulator (RC)
  • Windows Phone SDK 7.1 Assemblies (RC)
  • Silverlight 4 SDK and DRT
  • Windows Phone SDK 7.1 Extensions for XNA Game Studio 4.0
  • Microsoft Expression Blend SDK for Windows Phone 7
  • Microsoft Expression Blend SDK for Windows Phone OS 7.1
  • WCF Data Services Client for Window Phone
  • Microsoft Advertising SDK for Windows Phone

And if you are wondering if the documentation is still a confusing maze of old training material with the latest, the answer is yes.  I use the following links:
