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?

I developed both and in WPF. WPF definitely has a learning curve but it allows for some amazing things. Think of it as being similar to the the switch from MFC to Windows Forms.

Also, Blu, another twitter client, was created in WPF.

Developers are learning. Traction is building. Just give it time. HTML5 will be the same. It's hard to put a lot of effort into learning a new technology until you feel like it's where it needs to be and won't just disappear.
