The plugin platform war that doesn’t often get much media coverage: Flash vs. Silverlight

I’m fascinated by stories of tech companies going head to head.  I could do a better job of condensing this but an advantage that MSFT will lean on is that Silverlight can tap all the C# developers out there.

Even with the increasing adoption of Silverlight, it is surely not going to replace Flash player.

While Flash still remains lucrative for its larger base, technically it is possible to accomplish the same task with either.
