Everyone is talking about the name change of WPF/E to Silverlight. If you don't know anything about it, then you've probably have been under a rock.
Anyway, I thought some historical reflection might prove insightful. As we all know, Silverlight is Microsoft's answer to Flash. The first version of Flash was released in the spring of 1996, and was originally named FutureSplash.
If Microsoft's new product follows the same trend of shedding excess syllables, will the second release be called Slight?
