Silverlight is the product COA checker to see if you are running a valid copy of windows or office, I had thought, I have never seen silverlight Applications

Well...the "big time" ones are the Beijing Olympics and Netflix. There's also the presidential broadcasts. I'm not sure if they still use it for other things but if you're into following Obama and his stuff, I'm sure you can find them on those gov sites.

Here's a cool one.

Why? What's wrong with Silverlight?

I think more of the work will be in-house intranet Aps at first, maybe. But eventually there will be more and more Silverlight. Mostly for video because it's said to be better than Flash...from the other manopoly.

Yo, I also know they are working on it for mobile. But we'll see how that one works out. Flash kinda sucks on it I know that.

well for starters it ONLY WORKS WITH IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari...
to add, it runs on Macs and PC's with Linux in the pipeline with novell's Moonlight project, the official Silverlight client on linux.

sliverlight will be great if it takes off, and so far i have found it much butter for streaming than Flash.
