Provide certainty about the future of Lightswitch/Silverlight

The rumor is that Silverlight 5 is the end of Silverlight. Since Lightswitch is built on Silverlight, we assume it will be the end of Lightswitch. Developers want to invest time into a product with a reasonable future. Providing certainty about the future of this product will cause more developers to use it. Thank you.

    We have disclosed our future roadmap here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/lightswitch/archive/2012/06/11/announcing-the-lightswitch-html-client.aspx

    The existing Silverlight client and upcoming HTML-based client are complementary offerings—the Silverlight client will remain the go-to choice for building rich desktop applications; the user experience focus for the HTML client will be touch-first and optimized for mobile devices. As a companion to the desktop client, the HTML client will be best-suited for browsing data that is created and managed using the Silverlight desktop client.

    Please download the HTML client preview and provide feedback on where we’re headed here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/htmlclient

    Thanks!
