I really don't like it that I have to wait for an application to load inside a browser.
Regardless of the speed of the network. It really feels hacky.
And Silverlight is way to slow for complicated applications. Currently I am forced to used a SL application to manage security. I don't know if it's this particular implementation, but drag 'n drop sux! It's also very sluggish when you scroll, animations are sluggish,...
We did the same thing in HTML using jQuery and it's much more responsive.
Yes, you're right, I should have said:
People CAN use Silverlight on intranets for just that reason...
I didn't mean to imply that it was necessarily the technology of choice, just because the network is fast enough... obviously that will still be dictated by the application requirements.
