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?

I think he was asking if Netflix will abandon Silverlight/PlayReady, and use something that has proper Linux support, like Flash, which Hulu uses.

He never mentioned the video element or HTML5 support. It's funny how you could miss that considering it was only two sentences.
