Microsoft's new Dashboard redesign release date announced

The new Xbox 360 Dashboard, which was first announced back during E3, was given a Fall release window. We now know that Microsoft is expecting a November 25th launch date. The new dashboard will be much cleaner and easy to navigate, and will also feature new partner services such as Bing search (don't even pretend to be surprised), YouTube and Lovefilm. According to the same source that spilled the release date, Xbox apps will run using a modified version of Silverlight. Great.

The new dashboard looks much better than the nightmare that is the current Xbox experience, and added perks like YouTube and a search engine are nice, all I can think of is Silverlight? Really? I don't know about the rest of you, but Silverlight has never worked very well for me. It crashes on a regular basis and is, quite frankly, annoying. Hopefully 'modified' means fixed. It would more than just 'a shame' if not, since all the new apps will be using this software, and if its broken, then more trouble for everyone involved.
