I was trying to point out that with every new piece of technology comes dangers, and the dangers with such powerful APIs being exposed over the web, to me, out-way the benefits as a website using silver-light can bypass my web-browsers security features and install viruses to my computer without my consent, or download explicit images without my consent, and I would not even know, being how transparent you can make software with things like WinForms.

I do agree that it is a good piece of technology, I'm just saying that until it's been THOROUGHLY tested, and all holes created by exposing the deepest APIs of Windows to people on the web have been filled, I would not want to touch it because the risk associated with it is too high, even as a home user.
