Getting Started with Silverlight

There is an old Chinese curse saying "May you live in interesting times" (if you are interested go here). I think the are of Internet is really interesting time ... what will happen next ?
Silverlight the new product of Microsoft, that I think will blow away the FLASH, but it will take some time, of course.
In order to be fully equipped for creating silverlight projects you must have the VS Codename Orcas Beta 1, Silverlight 1.1 Alpha, and Microsoft Silverlight Tools Alpha for Visual Studio codename “Orcas” Beta 1.
At first I tried witht he tools, but had only the Silverlight 1.0 Beta ;) No success ;)
After some puzzling I finally understood that I must install the 1.1 Alpha in order to begin develop Silverlight applications with VS Codename Orcas.
Well, there is also a way to develop Silverlight application with VS 2005 and you can find more info here.
I hope to begin a series of SilverLight articles.
Looking forward for the next ;)
