Microsoft Popfly

Microsoft Popfly

This looks pretty cool and like Microsoft can create something new for once. It looks like you can build a site with widgets and drop and drop not only the widgets but the relationships between widgets. If ruby is on rails, then visual studio is now on air.

It seems the system is still in alpha and the plugin that is required to use it called SilverLight is in Beta. I signed up to get invited but that’s about all I can do for now, press my nose against the window.

I don’t want to get my hopes up with Microsoft though. They haven’t been the frontrunner in much for a while. I say this as I am using Vista as an operating system.
