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?

WPF apps have default templating to match OS look and feel. You can even switch resources and use the XP look and feel on Vista/7, or the Vista/7 look and feel on XP or vice versa.

WPF is a complex beast, with 10 ways to do the same thing, but it's the most powerful framework I've ever used.

Silverlight is WPF's less complex distant relative, instead of 10 ways to do something, there's 2-3.
