If you have been reading this blog for a while, you know how much work we have put into efficient software delivery guidance, multi tenancy best practices etc. One thing we have not done as much (at least not yet) is to show how to hook this efficient delivery model with rich experiences. However, one thing is clear, it is not because we have not shown how to build rich experiences that we believe browser-only access is the way to go.
Announcement such as Silverlight a few weeks ago or Microsoft Surface today can only reinforce my already strong belief in rich user experiences.
If you are still skeptic, have a look!
