Windows 7 Series

I listened to a good podcast today of Petzold discussing Silverlight for the upcoming Windows phone.

I must say, after listening to him talk I had some encouragement for the phone and the dev environment.

I do think it was a fantastic decision to take the route of managed code with SL as the option.

I can see great opportunities for companies to build phone enabled apps for their internal as well as outward facing clients.

I do think the market is saturated with iPhone, blackberry, android, etc phones – and I’m (sight unseen here) hoping that it does better than the Zune has.

With the latest iPhone announcements that are blocking devs from using anything outside of objective-c, c++, and c I was a bit discouraged (I want to see Monotouch succeed)
