Excellent, That's How I Feel!

I really love silverlight, and I really got a lot of questions:

Is WinRT one step behind? What about windows phone 7? All apps for wp7 must be send to the trash when windows 8 for phone and tablets arrives? Why to kill silverlight if it works so fine on the windows phone mobile devices?

We've gain big power and flexibility running .net code on the client side, WCF Ria Services are a great tech, will I send it all to the trash? I know that Win 8 has a desktop interface, but our users will prefer the metro interface over the desktop. Will run Win8 tablets the desktop version and our desktop apps?

My current app runs on silverlight, when I will try to sell it, I would recieve from my client: Man, are you trying to sell us an app that runs over dead technology?

Could someone try to explain me the following: Why should I write apps on html5/javascript for WinRT if they aren't cross plataform? I know that exist some kind of "binding" for c# and c++ for WinRT.

Html5 is a great idea, but the standard will take a loooooong time to be ready, and I couldn't stand check the browser to try to make the code compatible as we're doing currently with html4

Microsoft will promise me a light future for silverlight? They were wrong?

We really need an official communication from Microsoft.

Thank you for listen to me.
