Wow! I am losing faith in Microsoft, Windows 8, and Silverlight for their 30 second Windows 7 preview install

Message: Silverlight is being installed. Installing….

This thing does not install at all within their 30 second claim on a Acer I3 laptop. Not very decent since my system is a Windows 7 Ultimate. I dumped the process as in this is a piece of sh*t! At least at this point as of this date!

stock screener in C# using SilverLight. (could use Java or anything else)

I’m trying to build a stock screener in C# using SilverLight. (could use Java or anything else) Anyone have any info/links/videos on doing this with freely available feeds? Thanks in advance.

I use PERL to first download the NASDAQ 3000, then using the NASDAQ symbols I pull EOD data from Yahoo!. Once the data is local then I analyze. I’ve been working on a screener for several years (a pet project) and have yet to derive an analysis I like.

Hi, I can help you if you could be more specific. You may use Yahoo/Google – both have easy access from C#

If you don’t plan on keeping the implementation Windows-only, then I’d argue Java strongly at this point.

Prior, I have been a party to too many projects where they wrote for .NET, instead of Mono, and found out things won’t port. If you’re going to write portable C#, you want to start with Mono, not .NET.

But now, with Novell gutting the Mono team, and projects like Moonlight (open source SilverLight, which only runs on Win32) clearly in question, I’d argue Java is again at the forefront of any consideration for anything planning to be ported to non-Windows.

There are Linux-based and other non-Windows based turrets, thin clients and even an increasing number of locked-down desktops in the trading industry. Dependencies on Win32 (with native Win64 still being “flushed out”) libs is not ideal for longevity in my view

If your platform is .net, you should seriously consider F#. Relevant intro video here: http://channel9.msdn.com/blogs/pdc2008/tl11

I saw the glorius Windows 7 Mobile from Microsoft. This is sweet done in Silverlight

It will be out in Oct or November but what I saw was a lot more sexier than my boring old Android. I did not get to play with it but it looks pretty. All done in Silverlight with smart touch technology. Yes I say the hook in the smart Xbox crow. That will be the main market for this platform.
