You've got to be kidding me. Try to shove that load of bull down anyone's throat when justifying using HTML5 for RIA.

The feature comparison to Silverlight is a valid one, since your general argument seems to be that HTML5 can be a drop in replacement for something as elegant as Silverlight.

Windows makes up a sizable portion of the desktop market, and so does their browser, the mobile market is largely irrelevant when it comes to the purpose that RIA's serve.

Of course, if finding all sorts of corner cases to inflate HTML5s usage numbers makes you happy, then by all means.

I must say I'm impressed, you're the only person with the ability to bs enough through your teeth to even try to argue about the availability of HTML5.

HTML5 has it's uses, but it's not for the same audience that Silverlight, or even Flex aim at.
