The Silverlight Buzz

We saw a great stuff in pdc10, but all the talk is about Silverlight !!! When talking to ZDNet’s Mary-Jo Foley, Bob Muglia, the president of Microsoft’s server and tools business affirmed ” Microsoft’s commitment to making Silverlight the development platform for Windows Phone, he noted that the cross-platform solution Microsoft sees going forward is HTML.

That’s what make alot of people wondering if it’s the Dead of Silverlight ? If it’s the HTML5 era ?…

I read alot about it: Tech journalists , Developers and observers are talking about it .

In my humble point of view, i think that Silverlight is much more than a browser Technology, out-of-browsers applications in Silverlight 4 are in demand more than in-browser applications.Also, it’s too early to make a judgement  on HTML5 although we have seen some great Demos during pdc10.

And more important, Silverlight as Bob Muglia said is becomming the Development Platform for Windows Phone ! WOW !!!! Please people, that must mean something…

In the end , i want to say that may be i’m not qualified to make THE right judgement , i just made an observation.
