I bought a website template a while ago (before I discovered Open Source, I was young and stoopid just recently). I greatly liked the Flash header.

Of course, it eventually cost me another $30 -- after WEEKS of e-mail screaming back and forth at each other -- just to get the words "Your Business Name" changed to my actual business name. They kept telling me that all I had to do was buy a copy of Flash and learn how to use it, which I refused to do just to change three words.

I never did complete or post the new website format. By the time I got the change I wanted, looking at that once-so-attractive flash file made my hair clench. What do they care; they got their stinking $95 out of me.

I think I'm going back to plain old HTML pounded out on Notepad. Of course, there are some very interesting $30 flash banner generators out there....

Would I use Silverlight? With resistance, probably yes if it came free with the hardware. Would I buy it? Not if it meant spending more than $30.
