Apparently Windows CE/EC7 includes a version of Silverlight with a native C++ instead of managed API.  I suspect this will be included with Windows 8 as well and will become the new recommended native UI toolkit for Windows, replacing USER32.DLL (as Direct2D/DirectWrite replaced GDI).  They'll probably even rewrite the shell UI in it.

Whooh, now wouldn't that be something!
