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?

Whatever happened to the .NET compact framework?


Silverlight on WP7 uses the .NET Compact Framework. So it's still alive.

Desktop SL uses full .NET Framework, minus a lot of class libraries.
