    "The German Office for Information Security (BSI) says Windows operating
    systems are at risk as a result of security gaps in Microsoft's Internet
    Explorer web browser. The BSI recommended against using versions 6, 7 and 8
    of Internet Explorer on operating systems XP, Vista and Windows 7 until the
    programming faults had been corrected."

    Perhaps this is why M$ has not released a 64bit version of Silverlight for M$ Internet Explorer -
    because M$ is struggling to fix all the security flaws in M$IE.

    I can't think of any other good reason why M$ wouldn't properly support its own software other than its
    own sheer inability to do so!
