ComponentOne Sapphire project
ComponentOne is preparing a suite of Silverlight 1.1 controls that looks pretty amazing!! Button, CheckBox, ListBox, DatePicker, Accordion, DataGrid, … the list of controls is totally incredible (see below) *more controls than ASP.NET !!!* and they even use Astoria for data access!
You can test the demos live there:
I have admiration for companies who spend money and efforts on a technology which is not even beta, nothing is feature complete and nothing guaranteed by Microsoft. If you read the Silverlight alpha licence it is not even guaranteed that it will ship one day…
“PRE-RELEASE SOFTWARE. This software is a pre-release version. It may not work correctly or the way a final version of the software will. We may change it for the final, commercial version. We also may not release a commercial version.”
