ROFL @ first post... You're so funny... Silverlight is backed by one of the biggest software companies in the world. Flash was a _need_ to make adobe stuff work, and it does so well, to a point. MS is making SL and WPF an integral part of the PC OS/Computing paradigm. Assisted by great projects like Moonlight and mono, the XAML/.Net Combo is only gaining steam. I think you may need take a look in the mirror and note the plank before pointing out the speck.
