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

I ♥ Silverlight ... pls do work on next version :(
Dump Silverlight if you want but ONLY IF you bring WPF to the browser like SL is.
Where I think Microsoft went off the reservation is when the decided to make SL a subset of WPF when WPF (in most cases) is much more flexible.
I think most will agree SL rocks. I believe a WPF app should have the "Run like Silverlight" option.
Heck, I'd like if WPF had the same WCF/RIA services type of project where a data service appears as a data context in the WPF app.

Still the best LOB platform... and please fix the webbrowser mouse/key event bug... I just redicovered it last week... You can find it in connect
Silverlight is the best!!!
They killed Silverlight because they thought everybody will buy windows surface and windows phone and software development became more easy with HTML5.
But nobody buy Surface and Windows phone. Developers do not use metro, because it not backward compatible with older versions of windows. They do not use HTML5 because it is slow on phone and surface.
microsoft try to kill silverlight for the only reason that if sl continue to improve all other plafrom will be dead.
Please let go the idea of WinRT and continue on SL
please continue you can create SilverlightBrowser its more affective for LOB
It is practically impossible to implement all that code (http://clipflair.codeplex.com) in HTML5 in a way that is componentized, clean and cross-browser + cross-platform as is now with Silverlight
Port Silverlight to Android as app that opens a Silverlight:// protocol or something like that.
But, Micro....Soft........... thinking was different! For the next generation of OS will be voice over booting system like we talk with Robotics with PCs! or even Information Mobilitics world!
Metro is dead, nobody using it! Should be remove it from windows.
Silverlight is the future!
How can this be, I thought this was dead...
It seems like Microsoft doesn't care about developers much anymore.. they killed Silverlight, winforms, WPF, Technet, dead ended linq2sql immediately after it came out, removed source control support from MS access, and stopped holding MSDN and tech days events in my city for the first time in 20 years. I know when I'm not wanted, and I'm definitely not inflicting metro on my LOB customers.
Silverlight 6 + Windows 9 would be great! Otherway this will be the next Windows version what my company will ignore...
Microsoft will make a big mistake if they don't make another version of silverlight. Silverlight is the best tool out there for creating rich web applications. Who cares if you need a plugin for it. It's years ahead of HTML 5 and would "force" everyone to continue to use windows and IE. What's not to like here Microsoft?
Silverlight is a great platform! Bring on version 6 !
I was late to the party, but Silverlight Rocks, please keep it going.
I have a claim system developed using silverlight, please bring back silverlight. for heaven sake
There is no replace for silver light .
We have SCADA products what are developed in Silverlight. It is working great, and secure.
