This blogger talks about the future problems Silverlight developers might run into. Especially those who invested in the cross-platform functionality that Silverlight promised. Will Windows 8, Metro Style Apps, and IE 10 be the end of Silverlight?

Adobe's announced that Flash will not be supported on mobile browsers. It looks like the end of the web plugins era.

He's dead on. SL is not the cross-platform solution that was promised. It's not really MS's fault, either; SL and other 3rd party platforms are outlawed on devices that MS doesn't control. End result is that SL isn't cross platform. It can't be unless MS created some SL-to-X compiler, where X is the iOS/JavaScript/Android.
