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 performance can be terrible on older version of Windows i.e. older than Windows 7.

In XP I had dog slow performance with VS 2010 (which is in WPF), I researched the problem and came across the solution ... these APIs can be installed on VISTA and XP. Once these were install performance was as comparable as 2005 and 2008.
