M$ has demoted Silverlight to a niche and developers are ticked off. They thought they were developing web pages and media for the whole ecosystem… That’s what you get when you depend on a commercial enterprise looking at short-term solutions to killing competition rather than the best IT. M$ gives developers all kinds of inducements and then pulls the rug out from under them. FLOSS is better for developers. Even if the instigator abandons the project it can be forked and continued. Your investment in the technology is not wasted.

About Robert Pogson

I am a retired teacher in Canada. I taught in the subject areas where I have worked for almost forty years: maths, physics, chemistry and computers. I love hunting, fishing, picking berries and mushrooms, too.
