Microsoft Most websites glossed over this, but we didn't. Silverlight, once touted as Microsoft's answer to Adobe's Flash, has been retooled from its original purpose. Microsoft is betting big on HTML5 instead, turning Silverlight into the development platform for Windows Phone, and that's it. So... Silverlight is dead - long live Silerlight?

This has been the trend Silverlight has been going in for a while. Moving from a web based flash competitor, to a client side technology. It's going to converge with WPF and become the One UI Toolkit To Rule Them All.

I don't know of anyone who still uses Silverlight for pure web content in Microsoft shops, at work we do all our work Out of Browser. It's a cross platform CLR.
