re: Microsoft Understands Its Windows 8 Mistakes, Finally
Mike: This is not directly related to Win8, but I wish Microsoft would support Silverlight on mobile platforms other than Windows, like Android and put pressure on Apple to accept a Silverlight strategy. We embraced Silverlight, and then Microsoft buckled under HTML5 pressure from Steve Jobs. Silverlight could have been the "Cadillac" of web-based mobile applications and still could be given the power of late model phones. Someday, HTML5 may be everything it promised, but that day is still pretty far out. However, I do not believe HTML5 will ever deliver the quality look, feel, content security and adaptive streaming capabilities of Silverlight. If Microsoft is into second looks, it should also consider Silverlight.
