Why would someone use javascript frameworks over flex/flash/silverlight?

Last Modified: 2013-11-12
I'm writing a paper and trying to determine the advantages between plugin frameworks like flex/flash and silverlight versus javascript frameworks.  I can't find any good articles explaining why one would choose one over the other.  Any help?  Can developers created content for flex and silverlight without buying anything as with a framework like Yahoo UI?
