My question to you (developers & designers) about the context menu in Silverlight:
Is an application more user friendly, if there are no functions hidden in the context menu?
What do you think?
To get a context menu before Silverlight 4 you had to set the Silverlight app to windowless and do some weird hacks (UGLY and performance issues!).
With Silverlight 4 we have a context menu out of the box (MSDN Silverlight Whitepaper).
NB (Nota bene, the italian note)
There is no out-of-the-box context menu on the iPad.
I really like the UX of the iPad, but there are some inconsistencies left. Read more here from these usability experts (german article)
