HTML5 is 10 years far behind Silverlight. There are many things that Silverlight does and that HTML 5 cannot do. HTML5 is still HTML and nothing else. If you go to the Net you will see comments of people saying that HTML 5 can render videos better than Silverlight. I don't want to get involved in arguments about that, but the point here is that not everyone will build "Video Streaming applications" in fact in my career i have never done an application that will require me to show a video, i just use that for my personal site. This is the only thing they mention when these kind of arguments erupt.
Microsoft is still silent about the roadmap of Silverlight and there are many rumours that are even published in big Techs news sites. The rumour says that Silverlight 5 might be the last release of Silverlight. Let us sit back and watch, i am going to smile or Cry after the Announcements.
I will still post if Microsoft Kill my Favourite Technology and i will still post when it is announced that Silverlight still live's on.
