Microsoft "While Adobe has been getting most of the press recently for their Flash 10.1 RC, Microsoft has quietly announced their plans to release the final version of Silverlight 4.0 as early as next week. This major update will provide more fundamental changes than prior iterations, including Google Chrome support, better performance (up to 200% over Silverlight 3), improved security with digital signing and sandboxing, and greater control for developers."

If you are doing client facing controls, there is no reason not to use flash.


Heh? If you're doing controls for an intranet app you don't have the install base problem and if your team is familiar with .net using Flash would be a total waste of time.

Not necessarily, especially if you're in a company with a mixed environment such as some Windows machines and some Macs. True there's an sl for Mac but at the moment it's lagging behind the Windows version. If you do have a mixed environment, Silverlight is probably not what you want to use unless you know that only your Windows machines will need to access the intranet app in question.
