RE: "I'm sure she will continue to find applications out there that require
Shockwave, Silverlight, Windows, and who knows what else.  I try to find
replacements when I say no, but those are never as satisfying (to her) as
saying yes."

>From this description, and other pieces in the thread, this sounds less
like a technical issue and more like a personality issue. In other words,
this "problem" isn't technical in origin, and will continue to crop up
regardless of whether you install silverlight or not.

Good luck with this.
