Microsoft: Our strategy with Silverlight has shifted

We predicted this last year when after Win32, WinForms and WPF Microsoft announced moving to Silverlight as key display technology and now it’s confirmed: Silverlight is no longer the key focus for desktop/browser apps but html5 is. Too bad if you just built your strategy around Silverlight. Maybe a good time to switch to a vendor that doesn’t render all that code that you just wrote useless every few years.
