Silverlight 2.0 Penetration

I'm sure that you know that Silverlight was released a couple of weeks ago. ScottGu made an interesting comment indicating that Silverlight (that would be 1.0 or 1.1) was installed on 1 in 4 computers that are connected to the Internet. And that over the next month, those computers would be updated to 2.0. Also that they had already upgrade 100 million computers. These numbers surprised me, only in that I didn't expect that penetration had achieved that goal.

It also provides a number that might encourage people to start developing externally facing applications using Silverlight. Which, given some of the capabilities, is a good thing.
