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?

And getting slightly off-topic, how is WPF coming along? I mean, is it really taking off? I can't recall sampling any apps that use it, unless they're so close to the native Win32 look & feel that I didn't recognize it. I heard they retooled the code editor in VS 2010 to use it, but besides that?

Yeah, VS2010 is WPF.
In my hobby project I use WPF. I know, it's not a big project but you can see for yourself that it looks very native: http://code.google.com/p/yet-another-music-application/
