Silverlight 5: a solution looking for a problem to solve.
Microsoft advocates take note: listing the features of Silverlight 5 does not guarantee uptake. They need to identify problems domains where Silverlight kicks the asses of the competition - HTML5, Adobe, and/or more "conventional" web frameworks based on PHP, Java, Python or Ruby.
This is what Microsoft should be asking itself, because that's what the customers will be asking each other. Is Silverlight faster than tech X? Does it support more concurrent connections? it cheaper and quicker to deploy? Is development time less? What controls does it support over and above standard HTML forms, and are they really necessary?
