Silverlight - Is it worth it?
I saw Silverlight 3.0 recently and i was impressed by its capabilities. My question however was, is it really worth it?

No matter what it is capable of doing, most people don't have silverlight installed. So for intranets maybe it is ok but for the www i think many people would be put off at the "install silverlight" screen when they would visit your site.

I know it is the same thing as Flash in these terms, but...the majority of people know and have flash already.

What do you think?
