Hitler And The Downfall Of Silverlight

As most of us know, it was announced that the Metro-style bowser in Windows 8 does not support plug-ins.

Dean Hachamovitch stated last year in September For the web to move forward and for consumers to get the most out of touch-first browsing, the Metro style browser in Windows 8 is as HTML5-only as possible and plug-in free. The experience that plug-ins provide today is not a good match with Metro style browsing and the modern HTML5 web”

So what does this mean?
No Silverlight, no QuickTime, no Flash and no PDF.

Simply put, the Metro-style browser cannot support the plugins. However, you can still argue that Windows 8 has “desktop” mode, but is being positioned as something that should be used for more complex applications such as Photoshop, etc…

This also means that certified Silverlight professionals are not a happy bunch. Here’s a video we found that pretty much sums up how they feel.

Typical day for the IT professional

Almost every IT Professional has been there, when that computer illiterate calls you up and ask questions which are as simple to solve as turning a page in a book. But as this video shows, it seems that it has been a problem for centuries…

Neuroelectronic comments “The humour here is the idiot’s fear of trying anything. He knows how to use a scroll and he feels that means he shouldn't have to learn to use a book, so he flat out refuses to learn. Notice how he says well the scroll is faster.”
