Microsoft "Most people understand that Windows is used by a variety of people who have a variety of needs, ranging from corporate server to workstation to POS terminals to home PC and beyond. Most people accept that whenever Microsoft updates Windows, it has to balance the competing requirements to find some kind of workable compromise. There is however another set of competing requirements that many do not really register, even those that call themselves power users or are IT admins. It is a conflict between developers/programmers and Microsoft itself."

Nobody wanted cross platform silverlight and the project didn't go anywhere. That is fine.

But there was never anything stopping Silverlight from being cross platform whether it was from Microsoft or from someone else.

Mono and Xamarin are doing quite well, so there is a want for cross browser .NET like runtime.
