Silverlight has plenty of features that Flash could never will never have. Flash and Java are yesterday's technology. Silverlight and .Net are tomorrow's technology.

huh? .Net and Silverlight are just a rehash of old technologies. Essentially just a Java clone better in some cases worse in others.

C# syntax may look very similar to Java's, but that doesn't make it a clone. If you start developing in C# and .Net you realize how much more advanced and flexible they are compared to Java.
