    what is this crap? i went to watch a video on nbc on the Olympics and i get a lovely box showing me supported browsers, mac: firefox, safari, intel only. what the? no powerpc? why not? playing a flash or silverlight video does not require a intel processor! and it has nothing to do with copyright because its the same OS regardless of CPU. this really pisses me off.

    you're kidding

    W....T....F....

    What is silverlight, anyway? Why does MS come up with some stupid new video tech nearly every year? I hate this place.

    Stop being so lazy and look at the system requirements on the Microsoft website.

    Because Silverlight did the basics, and version 2 takes if further.

    Why the hell are you even whining? don't you think it is good that finally Adobe is forced to fix up their crappy flash plugin?

    What?

    No reason for Silverlight 2 to be Intel only.

    Adobe fixed what where?

    Hmm....

    Are universal apps any harder to make than intel only apps? I was under the impression that they were for all accounts the same.
