One thing missing from this comparison is the install base :) Since
Silverlight's install base is quite limited so far and MS doesn't have
the clout to force it on the market as it used to, why would a dev
team choose it over Flash, which is everywhere already?

Techcrunch & co gushing report of Silverlight still stands as a highly
recommended read, IMHO - if you want to get a good sense of their
writing's real value.
