Scott Guthrie gives us a status report on the Silverlight 2 deployment and key design wins worldwide.  100 million downloads of Silverlight 2 in the past 4 weeks.  Silverlight is now on 1 in 4 PCs on the web. BlockBuster and Netflix both use Silverlight for their online movie players.

Scott also sketches out some details on the Silverlight 3 release planned for sometime next year.  H.264 support, hardware GPU acceleration, and at long last proper design-time support for Silverlight in Visual Studio.
