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?

It's quite interesting to see that the big companies finally see the HTML5 standards as the way to go for most web experience. If only Microsoft would extend this type of idea for everything else (eg .docx). If only. *sigh*
