Scott Gu: Silverlight is strategic for Microsoft


The Gu has spoken:  Silverlight is important and strategic for Microsoft.

A bit like I mentioned earlier this week, the main points of Microsoft strategy are that Silverlight is for rich client applications while HTML 5 is for broader reach.

An interesting point of Scott Gu is that many of the new devices don’t even have an open development platform, so that HTML is the only option.

So it would seem that for the time being, rich development application will be contained in silos on different platform.  Nothing surprising there.  But I wonder how long it will take before the cost of the multiplication of form factors catch us.
