How times have changed

I remember it wasn't too long ago that Microsoft shills and web devs who were in its pockets were praising Silverlight to the heavens, declaring that it will dethrone Flash and become the de facto standard of web content playback. There were even a few simple Silverlight-based games/demos being paraded around to showcase the technical prowess of Silverlight.

The rest, as they say, is history.

But that still didn't stop Microsoft from listing Silverlight as one of the 'recommended updates' for Windows Updates.
