Silverlight Is Much More Than A Browser Technology
There is much noise around if Microsoft Silverlight will continue as a platform. I think this post by Brad summaries Microsoft’s view of where Silverlight is now heading:
“Silverlight is much more than a browser technology. There are three areas of investment for Silverlight outside the browser: the desktop, the mobile device, and the living room”
Reading between the lines, I see Silverlight as replacing WPF on the desktop. Silverlight is still important as an RIA – “On the web, the purpose of Silverlight has never been to replace HTML; it’s to do the things that HTML (and other technologies) couldn’t in a way that was easy for developers to tap into”.
