Another Microsoft-bashing paranoid.
No. When Silverlight came out (when I was not yet a Mac user) I avoided
it like the plague. The world had flash (etc.) and did not need
something from MS just because MS wanted to "add" to the "solution"
whether it was needed or not. (esp. not).
I don't need Silverlight "just because" MS developed it; certain
content providers that are important to me adopted Silverlight, and for
me to not use it would be analogous to saying "I really want to see
that great movie but I'm boycotting it because they used Sony cameras
and I like Canon." I believe that's called cutting off one's nose to
spite one's face. Silverlight is invisible. What's the big deal?
I agree with almost everything that you have said and almost everything that
you will say in your entire life.
