Microsoft Most websites glossed over this, but we didn't. Silverlight, once touted as Microsoft's answer to Adobe's Flash, has been retooled from its original purpose. Microsoft is betting big on HTML5 instead, turning Silverlight into the development platform for Windows Phone, and that's it. So... Silverlight is dead - long live Silerlight?

Major, but still not good.

On the smallest youtube video I get 30% cpu usage. On 720p it climbs up to 50%. This is all with the latest beta flash for mac.

Exactly. Silverlight absolutely crushes Flash when it comes to performance on OSX. It's not a competition.
