Silver light is subset of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).
Silver light separates UI and Business logic.
It can be hosted on desktop or webbrowser or mobile (soon).
It has visual aspects like 2d, 3d, graphics, animation, audio and video.
WPF is preferred than windows forms from VS 2008, .net 3.5 and expression blend.
WPF can run in web as well. Soon it might replace
GDI invented in 1984. No MDI (multiple windows), No build-in datagrid.
Bubbling, tunneling and Direct are the event handlers.
Silverlight has its own CLR, it can not directly talk to .net. ex: is not available, something like is availble.

All data calls in Silver light are asynchronous.
