    Since Silverlight works from Windows XP to Windows 7 and several browsers, i don't quite get the WinRT Windows 8 exclusive advantage.

    According to Gartner Windows 8 sales won't start easily, so why should i care about WinRT? Microsoft can change its strategy and drop WinRT the same way they did with Silverlight. If Microsoft doesn't make a commitment about its future client development platform it will loose its developers.
