At MIX10, Las Vegas, Tim Heuer will let out a sneak peek at some new application XAML themes developed by Microsoft for Silverlight 4, including one inspired by the Zune desktop software appropriately called “Metro”. Also includes ‘Grayscale, and Windows Theme – inspired by Windows 7 system design.” Although themes support was introduced with Silverlight 3, none of the built-in themes have been any compelling. These new themes on the other hand are much more extensive and modern which should make it easier for Silverlight developers to create more polished Silverlight applications without much if any investment in customizing the UI. For users, it means more better looking applications.
