One more thing. Bare with me please, this one isn't simple Smiley

I believe that the people here that cheered and gloated every time another Linux or andoid company signed patent licensing deal, were mostly Silverlight supporters. They were willing to throw the open web to the dogs, for the sake of what? Microsoft success? Their skills to be more relevant? I don't know for what, but the openness of the web meant nothing to them. I would even go further and say that most of them spread FUD w.r.t. HTML5. FUD like "html5 standard would be done in 2022" etc. All for the sake of Silverlight's (RIP) fight. Now some of them come and talk about standards and cross-platformness? hahaha

 

To sum up my thesis: Microsoft patents supporters==Silverlight Supporters==Open-web/standards haters==hurt by Google actions==Open-web/stanrdas lovers. a contradiction
