Silverlight 2.0 Too Heavy for Windows Mobile - Pun Intended

square_peg_in_round_hole_2

I managed to get my hands on a an internal copy of Silverlight 2.0 for Windows Mobile and have been playing around with it. It makes me a sad panda. It's so unbelievably slow. It might be because it it's a Debug build. It might be because it doesn't support hardware graphics acceleration. Or it might be because they tried to fit the desktop architecture onto a mobile phone. Take your pick, you guess is as good as mine. But Silverlight application development on Windows Mobile does not look promising.
