    What are the pros and cons of allowing Windows Update to install Microsoft
    Silverlight - at the present time and eventually? I have a conventional PC
    with Vista Home Premium, dual core processor, 2GB RAM and a reasonable
    graphics card. Doug

    Is intended for users or for developers? It sounds like it's for
    developers.

    It's intended for users. It enables SilverLight content to display in web
    pages where it is used.

  6. Heh, yeah, just for users. Developers are not going to touch it! Flash has
    been around for 12 years.

    IMO.
    I do not intend to install Silverlight until I have a need for it. Currently
    all sites I visit have media content that is compatible with my current
    viewers. If and when I go to a site that has media content that requires
    Silverlight, I will consider installing or foregoing the media content. I
    expect that Silverlight will have several version updates before I need to
    use it.

    More crapware from Microsoft in its efforts to control the web. Stay away
    from it!

    Cheers.

  9. Well it is not going to hurt your computer if you did install it.

  11. I find that IE7 slows down when you have lots of addons installed. I
    disable as many as I can in my main user profile.
