The Silverlight Front Opens

After much speculation in the two weeks since Silverlight burst on the scene I am surprised today to learn that attack on Flash has opened already. A company, Electric Rain renowned for their beautiful Flash-based Powerpoint replacement media kits, have announced the imminent availability of an SWF to XAML converter. Very soon existing Flash movies can be rendered in XAML and used directly in Silverlight. This immediately gathers the vast store of Flash movies into the Silverlight fold. Where will it end?
