    Which do you like best? I kinda like silverlight. It isn't as resource hungry as flash.

    I see no need for silverlight and can't wait till flash is dead either. It's such a hog and a pain to keep updated with the weekly exploits ...

    With HTML 5 coming out I can see that. But in regards of running things on your pc, I think Silverlight is better than Flash.

    They seem the same to me. We'd have to see if Silverlight is still light on resources a few years from now ^^

    Good point. I hope they don't turn into another flash with all the bulk and garbage.
