So, who volunteers to shot this horse (Silverlight for the web) in the head,  i'm tired of taunting Silverlightists. BUWAHAHAHAHAWink

Here's a little food for thought:

Future Windows applications will only be available via the Windows App Store, which will only be accessible on Windows. So the end of things like Silverlight and Win32, which had some degree of cross platform compatability via Moonlight and Wine will lead to a greater desire for Windows on the desktop.

Long live Linux?
