In its defense, Flash can do some pretty cool non-movie stuff. My team looked into using the Flex SDK for an executive dashboard. They have some very nice interactive charting controls. Even so, Flash is a bloated piece of crap performance-wise.
Microsoft Silverlight seemed surprisingly lightweight and snappy when I gave it a test drive for the dashboard project, but the feature set, at least in v2.0, is also lightweight and sparse.
