Re: Pros & Cons of installing MS Silverlight for Windows 7??


[re: zyborg47] [link to this post]
 
Silverlight was going to be the replacement for Flash, or that is how Microsoft saw it, but it failed.
It hasn't failed unless you consider win phone 7 as a failure.
Silverlight was never meant to be a replacement for flash just it's competition smile

It have failed, how often do you go to a website that requires silverlight apart from MS own? and even then they don't make it compulsory. ITV got rid of it. The problem with silverlight is that on Windows it is fine, but on the MAc and Linux it is pretty naff unless they have imp[roved it over the last 12 months or so.

Replacement was the wrong word, i should have said " Microsoft version of Flash, which Microsoft would have loved to to replaced flash".

windows is still reasonable value for money, as microsoft have yet to copy what others do and charge annual subscriptions for updates so because of that its good value, eg. XP lasted for about 10 years for its price.


i know Windows have problems, but it is getting better, windows 7 is pretty good.
Ok so I been screaming at it for the last couple of days, because I kept getting BSOD, but I found out that was not Windows fault. I moved my computer from one room to another and one of the memory sticks must have slipped out and I did not notice. I went into the machine yesterday to remove my old card reader and decided just to press the memory sticks to make sure and now know more problems

If windows 7 last as long as windows XP then it will be great value for money and as you said it gets updated often.

the problem I have is that SP1 will not install for some reason. I backed up my computer and even installed Windows 7 from Scratch to see if it would work then, but nope, even tried the readyness tool, still no go.

Technet was brilliant value till microsoft nerfed it, even the nerfed version is good value tho and especially if you also want office.




I know what technet is, but never knew it used to belong to another company.

Anyway, Silverlight, may as well install it as you never know,

Thank you guys for all your related response!! I may install Windows 7 SP1 only, but not Silverlight, as I should be reminded to install it if I do visit sites that require it.
Thanks

i think he may be referring to the fact that MS changed the product key numbers for the OS'es and office products, went from 10 to 2 about 6 months ago on the technet and technet plus subscriptions

Thought you'd like to know.

Shame, the less need I would have for Adobe the better, inefficient and instable rubbish.
