What’s Up with Media Center Markup Language Development?

March 1, 2008

One of my expectations for Windows Vista Media Center was that the new Media Center Markup Language would spark development of a lot of new "rich" applications. The results (at least in terms of quantity of applications to date) have been disappointing.

Niall Ginsbourg, is one of the premier MCML developers and has written the excellent Big Screen Photos 2 and Big Screen Weather 2. I have recommended them before but these fully extender compatible MCML applications are so cool that I purchased them, despite a lack of real interest in the subject matter.

Niall has a really interesting post about how Silverlight 2.0 is shaping up to be the best of Microsoft’s fractured development platforms and aspirational thoughts about how Siverlight might be used to develop Media Center applications. For anyone interested in the future of Media Center Development (even from just a consumer perspective like me), this post is worth a read.
