To be honest with you , i have never found anything better than Silverlight when it comes to web. The ease of development and power of the technology makes me to be joyous person when someone talks about other web related technologies. VB6 was not the best, but the ease it provide when building UI was good.
It hurts me to say that the time has come to defend Silverlight against non-Microsoft developers out there. The reason is not because i found something in Silverlight, but because Microsoft made it clear that it is not part of their road map. If Silverlight can be used in a Tablet , why would i still continue building applications in Silverlight. The world is going the Tablet way , the Mobile way.
But i must say, Silverlight is the most beautiful thing i have ever worked with and to make things worse , the companies like Telerik , who made that experience more beautiful , i say you did a Good Job. The World is going the HTML 5 route , though HTML 5 is not ready yet. It might take many years to bring it to Silverlight level. but as long as it is in infant days , Silverlight still rules. I hope Microsoft can see the beauty of Silverlight. Not all Silverlight developer want to stream the videos , but some of us want to develop enterprise applications that are stable , that are fast with better user experience and Silverlight provide that , i don't know any Microsoft technology that provides that.
I would like us to engage in a discussion, as you know points are gained in this Discussion for participation.
What do you think about what i just pointed out.
