I suggest you ...

Silverlight 6

Please do work on Silverlight next version. I feel Silverlight is great tool which has best in cross development web experience. Although you guys are spending time on HTML5 and other stuffs, but I feel it takes years to bring HTML 5 is not flexible enough like Silverlight.

One more thing, as a Silverlight developer it was only my chance to replace flash from my projects, but as you guys stopped working on it; I feel that I wasted my time in learning Silverlight.

Do start working on Silverlight, Only this will get you back in increasing footprints in website business

        Silverlight (sl) and HTML aspnet completely different, that is just a file system, all web pages, and sl RichTextBox) can be the Xaml is stored in the form of XML directly into the database.Also don't need to design a lot of xaml page in sl, unlike traditional web site can be thousands of page design, sl can put the page to < style TargetType = 'UserControl' / > way to focus in a xaml file designed, can put the business entity of binding to the automatic generation and integration of DataTemplate placed in some xaml resource files.This is completely different from traditional web development model.WCF as communication way, convenient development model

        XNA first, and now Silverlight. Instead of follow the wind, you have to take into account that there is a world on intranet application, as there is a world on using xna for projects other than games: we developed a SCADA based on Silverlight, and a 3D representation of our production machines for control and diagnostics using xna. Meditate, Microsoft's peaople, meditate...

        Although there are now webgl but I still support silverlight, because it has the potential to a more comprehensive,
        Hope razor engine can be used in xaml editor, hope can have new
        Silverlight functionality, continuously strengthen its performance at the same time, expect the browser can directly
        Support silverlight, even if other technology can realize all kinds of cool effect, however
        Silverlight still has its value in the development, especially compared with HTML, CSS, js
        In terms of the development pattern of it, we can put up with silverlight on various aspects is not done
        One of the best.But as long as try your best to keep the widening gap between is ok, we would like to see
        Silverlgiht unceasing increase, add, remain competitive.Developers and users are still
        Will like silverlight, because of its rapid development will reduce the cost of the software.People have no reason to
        Care about have a plug-in.I think silverlight can also faster, stronger!

        i just finished my silverlight application for currency trading company . Everybody like the application. I am expecting silverlight 6.

        I've done Silverlight and html 5 and prefer Silverlight. The problem is that it is not supported on mobile devices, particularly iOS devices, and never will be. The market is becoming very mobile-centric which is why Silverlight will ultimately die or become a freeware product maintained by the community but not Microsoft. Microsoft usually makes good business decisions even when they aren't the best technical decisions.

        I vote for Silverlight 6. They should make silverlight the WEB Standard :) For instance on each OS Silverlight runtime installed. Mobile compatability. Performace upgrades etc..

        Do you remember Moonlight (the open source version of Silverlight).
        You can listen the explanation of Miguel de Icasa about "Why Moonlight is not supported now" (minute 21:50) and "Is RIA dead? (minute 31:10) in his participation in recent Microsoft Build 2014.

        One cannot trust in offerings of "paradises" ("Rich Internet Applications" promise).
        Yes, modern apps looks great, but not ready yet (remember Win 8 to Win 8.1, some changes to programs). Things missing in Windows 8.1 yet (example: control by OS of movements of device) and other things that programmer must implement "by hand". A good SO must include (all) service calls to common resources.
        I have thousands of lines written in Silverlight 5, no problem for migrate to modern apps, I know that the only constant is the movement, but; Will be modern apps supported and not deprecated in future, like Silverlight?
        Silverlight will be supported for ten years, so, before write a lot of moderns apps, we have time to wait for a stable versión of the popular Operating System.

        My company is in a trouble.
        We do not like WPF because it is not runing in browsers.
        We have many Silverlight application, but Microsoft want to kill it. So we do not develop in Silverlight.
        And we do not use Metro, because it is not backward compatible (and Metro is a big ****

        Now we try to use HTML5 and javascript. HTML5 and Javascript make Microsoft's products and technologyes totally ignorable.
