Silverlight at an End... RIP

I was aghast when I saw this article...

don't get me wrong I think html 5 is great but there are so many wholes and are we really expecting all the browser's to get together and get it straight as to rendering behavior? not to mention all the nonsense about 'assumed' markup that browsers try to fix poorly formed markup. I mean really why not just use the SGML spec and call it good...

Any case with the coming trends towards UX and high touch I think the html 5 spec is too little to late for killing Silverlight and flash.

  1. What Silverlight adds is a geat development environment for those familiar with .NET and visual studio.

    Flash/flex also has good development support and both have great developer communities. So I think it will be a long time before the same support level is available for HTML 5
