    This is awesome! Maybe some people will finally refrain from using HTML + CSS + JS combo. Silverlight and WPF make great sense. Everything else seems retarded. Why we had to wait almost 20 years for something like Silverlight... How long did it take to write this Magister 5 app? Does it use commercially available control package?
