I’m wondering if quoting install numbers is really worth it anymore. I know one of the benefits of Flash is that it is on virtually every machine. What is the threshold # that everyone is looking for? To me it should be around 50%. Once it’s on or around 50% of machines the bit should flip from 0 –> 1 and we just say, yes it’s ok to build something on Silverlight.
I completely understand for Silverlight 1 and event Silverlight 2 it was a bit tough to justify a Silverlight only experience. On www.identitymine.com we updated our sites to have Silverlight 2 elements on the homepage. Something we didn’t do for Silverlight 1.
I thought it was an odd comparison to compare it Firefox, Opera and Safari.
Just for fun I thought I would try a few other comparisons:
Silverlight has the same number of installs as:
and another 57,700,000 other items.
