Prevent a potential WPF/e - Silverlight conflict Internet
Silverlight is the new name of something that came up a few months ago (in beta as well) under the name WPF/e.

The installer for Silverlight doesn't look for a previous install under the old WPFe name, and installs itself in addition to the old plug-in. Bad, bad karma. For people who have installed the old beta, I would suggest deleting /Library » Internet Plug-Ins » WPFe.plugin. if they want to install Silverlight. There should be a WPFe receipt as well, but for some reason, I couldn't find it on my Mac.

What? A Microsoft product with a sloppy installation procedure? I can't believe it! All of their other products are so intuitive.


PS. Just try to open two different documents with the same name in Excel. Now that is some great programming!
