Silverlight Tools: Build for OS X!
Jamie over at Big Spaceship voices a view echoed by most designers – Expression Blend needs an OS X build. VMWare and Parallels work, but forcing all designers to install a VM just to run Blend when they spend their lives in OS X land using the Adobe suite is madness. I know Microsoft want to sell Windows, but on the flip side they also need to make it easy for designers to use Expression Blend.
“Silverlight is a worthy competitor to Flash. It is a lot of fun to build in. I recommend it. I think there are times when it’ll be faster to build certain things in Silverlight than Flash and vice versa, and it is a matter of learning where the strengths and weaknesses are for each.”
