Unless I've missed something in my 1 week holiday you can't get silverlight on Android o/s.

Silverlight is a Microsoft product, similar to flash. It will never be on Android.

Hmm, do you really know what you are talking about?
ms itself has ported sl to the mac and helped the mono team to port it to linux.

And after the mono team is now free of novell, they allready anounced that they will try to support sl on android.
with ms move to support arm architecture for w8, it is also very possible that android will gain alot.

Yes, I do. Does iOS have Silverlight? No. Maybe it will be ported to Honeycomb. But I truly doubt it will ever be on a Phone OS.

As it is the std programming environment on WP7 you are wrong with that.

True, I guess I wasn't clear. I mean COMPETITOR phone os: iOS, Android, whatever Samsung's is... WP7 is Microsoft's Like Office, we most likely won't see it anywhere else, as it is a selling feature of WP7.

Development started early this morning, we will first deliver the iPhone stack, followed by the Android stack, and then the Moonlight ports to both platforms.

Sactioned by isn't actually Microsoft. Truly, it doesn't matter. I'm not sure why you're arguing about it.

Yes. Note, though, that Moonlight (the Silverlight implementation in Mono) doesn't support DRM, which means it's not usable for the only thing anyone ever installs Silverlight for: Netflix.

Really, stop being combative. The truth here is that MICROSOFT who wrote the ORIGINAL silverlight didn't port it to Android, and the only community ports are only half-usable.

The question was if there is a Silverlight version coming, not if a MS version is coming.
Is it possible that you can't accept that you are wrong on something?

I give up. Honestly, this community is very argumentative, YES I WAS WRONG. Get over it. Stop arguing and be done with it.
