    There are lots of Advantage and disadvantage of any software/tool so that also associate with it to sliverlight.

    Benefits of Silverlight

    Silverlight offers cross-domain support for applications
    Silverlight plugin is just a 1MB download and is supported in windows XP and above.
    Silverlight also has a browser plugin but still needs to reach at pace with flash.

    Disadvantages are:

    It was not designed for very large applications (though some people are still creating them anyway)
    It can be seen to lack flexibility (can usually be overcome, but things need to be done the "LightSwitch way")
    It can be hard for developers, who are familiar with other technologies, to get used to doing things the "LightSwitch way"
    supports asynchronous calls


    hope this helps you

    Advantage:
    you can built rich internet applications

    Disadvantage:
    rests on client machine in xap file format before executing
    cant access Data classes like in normal .NET applications, need to write WCF Service/web service for that

    Here is list of some good points that you can work upon.
    Advantages:
    1. Silverlight gives you cross-domain support for applications
    2. Silverlight plugin is lightweight and can be easily install on operating system XP and Above
    3. asynchronous calls can be supported by Silverlight
    4. Silverlight does NOT need IIS to be hosted upon, any web server will do the trick
    5. Silverlight has the .NET framework along with the DLR (Dynamic language runtime) and a rich control set.

    ---------------------------------

    Disadvantages
    1. Silvberlight can not interact to database directly, it needs some intermediate support
    2. As it is heavy in running then and if your clients are on more restrictive hardware and software then it may affect your performance
    3. Silverlight uses no compression in the images and text components of its animations it will put load on system.

    Hope it helps
