I'm really excited about the potential found in Silverlight 1.1. The ability to create rich, browser-embedded applications using .NET languages is very appealing.
I mentioned to a control vendor that what I really need to move forward is a grid control for Silverlight. His response was to question the whole feasibility of building a mission-critical Web application on the top of Silverlight.
Hmmmm... If large companies have a group policy that disables ActiveXObject creation, are we in trouble?
It seems to me that Flash hasn't been a problem that way. Is it because Flash is shipped with Internet Explorer and gets special treatment? Will Silverlight, as a Microsoft-supported product, get an exemption to corporate curbs on ActiveX?
