Amidst all of this, let's not forget who the potential big winner is with this year's Olympics. No, it's not all of the athletes competing for Olympic glory, it's Microsoft's Silverlight. Microsoft scored the exclusive deal with NBC for Silverlight to power all of their Olympic web offerings. Not having caught on that well yet, this will prove to be a good way to expose a lot of new people to Silverlight and get their plug-in installed on a lot more computers. While it may not be the gamebreaker, it will certainly give them a shot in the arm in their fight against Flash.
