Announcing the new Silverlight 3.0 Ad Fest

Since when did Microsoft take to making their sites look so fucking ugly! Take the Silverlight 3.0 site for example.

I know times are tough, but putting all these ads on pages – especially a site promoting such an exciting new release – is just unbelievable.

Sure, it’s great that 3rd party vendors have taken to Silverlight so enthusiastically, but promoting them so blatantly and crassly is a complete backwards step.

The Microsoft Silverlight site - a UX nightmare!

The irony of course is that Microsoft are promoting Silverlight to designers, the very audience who take look and feel so seriously. From a User Experience point of view the Silverlight site is complete fuckup.

Microsoft, lift your game please!
