Non-programmers arm yourself for the upcoming Silverlight v. Flash battle

If, like me, you work with and around web/tech nerds, you’ve undoubtedly heard murmurings about Flash vs. Silverlight. I’m not sure if this is as contentious of a battle as Mac vs. PC or IE vs. Firefox, but it seems to have that kind of potential.

I set out to find out what exactly the hubbub was about these two technologies and why they’re doing battle. There’s a lot of information about this, mostly aimed at people who know a lot about coding and not a lot of information (at least that I could find) aimed at people who just want an easy answer. I don’t think there is an easy answer. Though I did manage to glean a pretty good deal of info from these three articles. Knowledge is power, arm yourself now because you never know just when the Silverlight or Flash question becomes as self-defining as Coke or Pepsi.
