We are planning to develop a web based application using Silverlight 2.0. The application will be used by our company employees. The application will be accessed using IE6 (Yeah IE6) and Silverlight is not installed.
We will be rolling our Silverlight through our IT support to all the users. All employees use Windows.
Is there any thing else which I should consider before developing this application using Silverlight.
Are there any disadvantages?
Will there be any performance issues in IE6? Should I upgrade to IE7/IE8?
This application will be used by business who open 10's of spread sheets and applications. 512MB is the standard memory available for an employee's PC. Will it be heavy to use Silverlight in IE6? Will it cause the system to hang?
Any other points I should consider?
Edit: After the first answer from Mark. Are there any "stress test" app available to check our users PC build?
Thanks in advance.
