HP Comes Silverlight Ready

The announcement that HP will ship its PCs next year with Microsoft’s Live Search reconfigured is significant for Microsoft as it starts to try and rebuild its search share. Will it make a difference is questionable as many will merely unset it as their default and leave it dormant. However will they do the same with Microsoft’s Silverlight? Silverlight is their answer to Flash and this move may well increase its chances of competing in that growing marketplace.

We envisage that competitors will once again raise the unfair practice questions and it will be interesting to see how Silverlight develops.
