This might be interesting, but I was never able to get Silverlight working on my PC in any other browser than IE. Not in Firefox or Opera, even though they tell you they support Firefox. As long as it doesn’t work in any other browser than IE, I won’t deem it worthy for my time. Why use Silverlight when you could use ActiveX? Bah! :P

When I install Silverlight like it asks me to do I get to install 1.0. The game requires 1.1. Stupid.

You’ll have to get the alpha here:

Couldn’t install it on my computer with out restarting. Plugins no matter how awesome the performance and animations capabilities are always going to lose to the Open Web (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript).

Microsoft? Open Source?

@Bob:
.
What makes a technology “Open Web”? Seems to me that you think any technology that comes bundled with most browsers in 2007 (e.g. the Javascript engine) is Open Web, but all other tech (e.g. Silverlight) isn’t.
.
By that reasoning it seems a bad idea to use the word “always”. I hear Microsoft is fairly decent at getting OEMs to bundle MS software.
