Photosynth for Mac (as well as Linux)

Yesterday's post talked about Photosynth becoming available on Moonlight, via a new Silverlight-based Photosynth viewer.

Since Silverlight 2.0 is already available for Mac, it makes sense that the 'test' Sydney synth also works on the Mac - which it does (in Safari, even!):

However, while it isn't very obvious, Microsoft has already started enabling the Photosynth website itself for Mac users! The javascript-driven homepage always worked...

But now if you attempt to access a synth you should see this message (since, like, mid-December)

and assuming you have Silverlight 2.0 installed, away you go!

Unfortunately you still need a Windows PC to create synths, but there are quite a few available to browse, including Barack Obama's inauguration.
