There’s been a lot of discussion lately around web standards and HTML 5 in
particular. People have been asking us how Silverlight fits into a future world
where the tag is available to developers. It’s a fair question—and
I’ll provide a detailed answer—but I think it’s predicated upon an
oversimplification of the role of standards that I’d like to clear up first. I’d
also like to delineate why premium media experiences and “apps” are better with
Silverlight and reveal how Silverlight is going beyond the browser to the
desktop and devices.

Great article that explains why Silverlight is here to stay and how it is positioned vs HTML5
