Is there a product called Sliverlight, possibly a spoof, knockoff, or add-on, or are there that many people who mistype Silverlight? Before I go off randomly changing Sliverlight to Silverlight, I'd want to make sure it's not a real product. I noticed there are 4 questions tagged "sliverlight" as well.

  • Thanks for the response. I'm mostly a Java/Unix person at the moment. Haven't done MS dev in 10+ years.
