Microsoft “WPF/E” beta available for download!

Macintosh users can now download the “WPF/E” beta from microsoft. This allows Macintosh users to play files created by Microsoft’s new “Flash Killer” application Sparkle. Once you have installed it, the plugin works with both Safari and Firefox. You can see examples of it’s use here (note the first video in the second example where they talk about the number of Macs that have been appearing in Redmond). This is exciting only because it offers hope that whatever development platform content developers use in the future, the mac should be able to display them all. I really hope that this doesn’t start pushing Flash out of the way too much, but I’d be happy just to see a lot less sites that say “Sorry, Microsoft Windows/Internet Explorer Only”.
