Im not a friend of frameworks or runtimes that grow to something that they were never ment to be... Thats the same with HTML.. It was solely made for browsers. We allready do have frameworks for mobile development. Yes they are not allways perfect but evolving a script-language to a "one size fits all" framework will not work. At least i hope so, because im no friend of HTML.(5)

When i tried using Silverlight, i fall in love with it's simplicity, however now you don't have option to use HTML5 for webdevelopment.

Nowadays the hardware if pretty much abstract to software, it's onus of the OS to be able interface with the devices. But... Operating systems usually don't mingle...
Think about Windows, Linux and OSX... There is no compatible shared area between them. All apps that run across those platforms rely on some sort of software abstraction layers and the same happens on the mobile world.
There are already a handful of options for cross platform development but then another problem arises: They don't feel native!
This same problem happens on desktop cross platform development. Think about JAVA desktop applications for instance. They run everywhere that supports the JAVA virtual machine, and everywhere the app looks exactly the same, but nowhere it feels native. If you go to Windows it doesn't look like a Windows app, same on Linux and wherever.
There's so much more to say about this but it's too early in the morning here
Choose wisely! Cheers! Alex
