Silverlight 2 Turns 6 . . . % that is.

One of my dreams is to have all the flash game portals out on the internets, Kongregate, Addicting Games, Newgrounds ... etc., start supporting Silverlight games alongside Flash.

I'm positve they will eventually, but not until the Silverlight install base reaches a certain threshold. I'm not sure what that threshold is but I hope we get there soon.

The best place I found to keep track of the approximate Silverlight 2 install-base is www.riastats.com.  RIAStats keeps real-time data on the install-base of the different plug-ins.  They somewhat recently started filtering out sites with content specifically dedicated to Silverlight so as to have a more accurate reading.

Today, the percentage install-base for Silverlight 2 crossed the 6% line! woohoo! 

Still a long way to go but it's moving in the right direction.  Hopefully things will pick up once the final version of Silverlight 2 is released.
