How common is the Silverlight runtime ?
I'm planning to do some development for school stuff (which will be freebies), mixture of Web Applications, SCORM compliant materials etc.
I'm unsure as to whether to code in DHTML or Silverlight. Silverlight is easier, obviously, but has the problem of requiring the plugin.
Could people advise me as to how prevalent the plug in is, and how easy it would be for teachers and/or network staff to install it, in primary or secondary environments ? Would 'lock downs' prevent the usual install method SL2 uses (offers the download if the plugin isn't found). I understand the tech. fine but I'm not au fait with the various network systems.
TIA. All opinions gratefully accepted :)
