Windows Update is offering me Silverlight as an optional download. Are there any particular advantages or disadvantages in having it?

I installed it some time ago and can't say that I have noticed anything positive or negative. My guess is that somewhere out there there are websites that use it instead of Flash and I might need it one day.

it seems to be a download no one uses, might be used when windows 7 appears. i downloaded it but have never seen it it action.
