There will be a new home for Silverlight launch on April 30th (for MIX).  That site will be at http://silverlight.net. I assume it will be a new site ala asp.net, windowsforms.net, etc.

Note the .net part of the web address…I was confused last night when they launched the new name and noticed that http://silverlight.com was a .mac hosted web page.  I wonder if they couldn’t get the rights to the domain or they have something tricky up there sleeve.
