Well I've seen this Silverlight time and again when I've had to stop by windows looking for stuff for my Office 07. Now my Vista is offering me this as an update but I've put off installing it because I've really seen no need.

I understand what it is basically, a competition for Adobe stuff, Java, probably flash.
Anybody using this Silverlight thing yet are there cool sites using this yet?

It's Microsoft's take on Flash. The silverlight.net site has some examples.

Since its M$, I have to take some time to look at it because they have a way of muscling in on well-trod territory and taking it over. Not always, but you never know.

I installed it. I haven't had any headaches from it, but haven't seen an improvement either.
