Considering quite a lot of Visual Studio is currently written in XAML, I think it'll be around for a while.

Do you think, even for a second, that Microsoft isn't working on a web-based IDE? If it doesn't, it sure will be the odd one, since from what i'm seeing, everyone and their dog is either developing one from scratch, or creating a new one from exisiting components. e.g. http://blog.springsource.org/2012/10/11/scripted-a-javascript-editor-from-vmware/

Oh, and springsource are famous for their java tooling Smiley
