    Learn AS3 or Silverlight?

    I wanted to learn AS3 but Silverlight3 is looking pretty epic. Personally I would love to build high-end 2D games out of flash but it lacks hardware support. What's your opinion on the matter?

    Thats tough, I don't know Silverlight but I know its still far from saturated into the market. If you are focusing on web, then I'd still do AS3, no question. If you want hardware support, I don't know how they compare, but I would look at the hardware you want to support, and see what their roadmap is.
