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?

Sad to move on

One one hand I'm really happy that this will FINALLY put an end to the moonlight bashing. On the other hand I'm a bit sad that this will forever make this great platform a niche product.

Although I have some understanding for the "open source" fanboys (most of them seem to be non developers) outright hatred against anything .net I /really/ like the architecture of the silverlight platform. I guess it's time to move on.
