I'm always seeing the announcement for it on the MS site when I go there for downloads, but have yet to do it. Should I, or is it another Bill Gates scheme for more world domination of the interwebz?






ETA. 6k wasted on this?

It stacks another set of chairs and a table on the tower.

I downloaded it last summer because the website for the Olympics required it to watch online videos of the games. I've since removed it. Haven't found any other need for it.

I downloaded it to run with Netflix instant. It sucks. Wish I could just use media player instead. I will be cancelling my Netflix trial because of it.

It's MS's answer to Flash(Adobe). Flash really sucks so I am pulling for SL to do better.

Silverlight is a tool for creating animations and general manipulation of graphics.  The program information is stored in XML and it can be programmed to do most anything from a graphics standpoint.  For the end user this does not mean much, for a developer, it is another tool in the tool box.

I refuse to visit any site that uses it.  I don't have it installed.

Fuck MS.

I don't like flash.  So this is Microsoft's answer to flash.  Just another program to block.  /sigh

For me it seems to mess up streaming radio over the Internet. I end up uninstalling it and go back to Media Player.
