Microsoft shifting to HTML5 as primary cross-platform runtime

But when it comes to touting Silverlight as Microsoft’s vehicle for delivering a cross-platform runtime, “our strategy has shifted,” Muglia told me.

  <p>
    Silverlight will continue to be a cross-platform solution, working on a variety of operating system/browser platforms, going forward, he said. “But HTML is the only true cross platform solution for everything, including (Apple’s) iOS platform,” Muglia said.

  Wow, looks like Microsoft if taking some radical steps to get back into the game. I think this is the right direction to go for Microsoft.
