Microsoft could well deliver with Silverlight
Microsoft’s new “Flash/Flex killer” Silverlight seems to have made quite an impression on some.

The demos are impressive, the client is quite light (4Mb in Windows) and Microsoft has the development clout to get this widely adopted — it’ll be interesting to see what happens.
