    You think that people who want to program using native code but don't find MFC, ATL or just plain Win32 adequate, would rather use Javascript HTML5 than WPF/Silverlight? I suppose there is a train of thought that says 'if I can't go fast then I'll go as slow as possible instead', but it's not a very logical one.

     

    In reality, outside of games development, nobody is queueing up to write native code.

    That's because native Win32 code isn't a pleasure to develop in.

     

    I disagree with your "outside of games development" because you overlook iPhone/iPad and OS X development where the Cocoa API and ObjC environment present a modern OOP platform to build on with a strong class library to boot.
