I've seen a few posts come through google reader talking about silverlight. The thing that I haven't caught in any of the other posts is that Ruby is one of the supported languages!
Taken from http://silverlight.net
Microsoft® Silverlight™ is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering
the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications
for the Web. Silverlight offers a flexible programming model that supports AJAX,
VB, C#, Python, and Ruby, and integrates with existing Web applications. Silverlight
supports fast, cost-effective delivery of high-quality video to all major browsers
running on the Mac OS or Windows.
This makes me very excited
Update: Jonathan Edwards called it.
Update: Anders noticed this as well.
