CNET's Webware 100 is a simple enough contest to determine the most appreciated services in the Web 2.0 universe. There are areas to choose your favorite bit of media, commerce, networking, and plenty of others. This year the Publishing category includes Microsoft Silverlight, a technology close to our hearts, amongst some steep competition. Get out the vote and let the world know what are the best pieces of the web landscape. If you need some encouragement be sure to check out the Silverlight Showcase of incredible web apps from MIX07.

    Silverlight sucks, can't even install it on a computer with XP(SP2)

    It should function just fine on an XPSP2 machine. If you're having problems installing it we'd love to try and find the right answer for you.

    It's maybe a bit harsh to say it sucks, but I would like to see some more things from SilverLight as well before voting on any awards. Like:
    - adaptation
    - a RTM release
    - true cross-browser implementation (working on *n*xes)
    - some useful implementations we haven't seen with flash yet

    Best Regards,
