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?

What's with the "Mac version didn't really go down well" FUD? Seems like a line you threw in just for the hell of it.

As for HTML5 being the future of all app development, I have to thank my lucky stars that I retired from professional programming a few years back.
