Whats the main different with this library and the silverlight port of NetTopology Suite?

I wasn't aware that NetTopology Suite has a Silverlight version? Could you post a link to it, I can't seem to find it and it isn't listed on the NetTopolgy Suite website.

The three assemblies that you need to include for NetTopology Suite total at 500Kb. This is rather a lot of size to add to a Silverlight application. I guess one of the differences (assuming there is a Silverlight version of NetTopology Suite) with SilverSpatial is that one of its goals is to be as light weight as possible. This is actually a main goal in all of my open source projects.

I'm not going to say that SilverSpatial is going to be far superior, but rather SilverSpatial will do its intended job and do it well. And, if you find NetTopology more useful, then by all means use that. This is really just another alternative, but I'll be using SilverSpatial in my projects.
