In this time where flash is Everywhere, where html5 is replacing flash for video playback, where apple wont even allow flash on their hardware .. they require silverlight, the failed MS replacement for flash.

Its been around for 3 years and is still mainly unused and generally unknown except if you’re in the web spectrum of the tech community.
And the whole iWatch thing works great with flash on the several Belgian sites where its embedded; why the switch to Silverlight?
We ll probably never know nor understand 😦
