I believe that ms silverlight is an alternative to adobe flash,

As I understand it Silverlight is a tool for Software developers.

I think MS recently dropped silverlight development for general pc use and are instead going for HTML5

you will need silverlight if you use skyplayer to view sky tv on the net.

the only use i have found for it.

I believe that grey george is correct - at least according to "CLICK" on the beeb last weekend.

so I might as well just keep to adobe flash and shockwave then, just wondering if silverlight was any good as a replacement to save hd space.
guees not then, just like most microsoft software.
