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 support and future development work
While Microsoft continues to support Silverlight, and remains committed to doing so into 2021, there will be no new development work except security fixes and high-priority reliability fixes.
Silverlight out-of-browser apps will work in Windows 10. Silverlight controls and apps will continue to work in Internet Explorer until October 12, 2021, on down-level browsers and on the desktop.
Our support lifecycle policy for Silverlight remains unchanged:
For future development, we recommend modernizing Silverlight applications to HTML5 solutions which provide broader reach across platforms and browsers. In addition to the solutions listed in the blog post above, there is a free .NET Technology Guide eBook to help with migration planning located at: http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/6/E/16E9FC39-0D61-4DB8-AADE-9F6950B8BF49/Microsoft_Press_eBook_NET_Technology_Guide_for_Business_Applications.pdf

Silverlight rocks!!!! Business applications are not the same in HTML5. IOC, Publisher/Suscriber are so unstable in HTML5 and silverlight match perfectly with this patterns. Please, if you are letting silverlight die, please let us use the source code for make it a better tool.
We need an effective RoadMap for Silverlight xbap ... or wpf everywhere !
>> Microsoft don't respect their developers.
>> Microsoft don't even respect their own products.
>> Not Silverlight, not XNA, not VB6 programming.
>>>> Expression Web
Dont forget Foxpro!
Please please we need it !
Silverlight is dying,
Lightswitch is dying,
Microsoft is - quo vadis?
Please respect the 3000 Interested in Silverlight.
Be accountable, the future of Silverlight

What is the future of Silverlight?
CSHTML5 is just a ****. Unuseable!
Lets look at this project at http://www.cshtml5.com/
it is called C#/XAML and HTML5 ..please inform every silverlight developer you know about this project...
Lets support this project so that our silvelight skill is not wasted
Silverlight 6 is here, and it is called CSHTML5. It's a shame that MSFT leadership couldn't make something like this after Mix'11. It would be done, and way bigger and faster by now. Instead they have been scratching their nuts and trying to impress us with TypeScript and Angular. :p
Does Microsoft have a small action can not do to respond to more than 12,000 person

*** was a great idea but ** killed it (and we waste lot of time - and money- building on MS XNA technology for representing our machinery on 3D environment). Silverlight was a great idea, allow us to deliver machinery functionality and control over intranet, now MS is killing Silverlight. How we can trust in MS? **,please keep your technologies updated, please be a LEADER, not a ********
"We develop in silverlight for more than 3 years.
Have we made a mistake choosing microsoft technology rather than java?"
The answer has to be yes.
Microsoft will abandon any and all of their technologies, just like they abandoned the VB6 programming language.
