He has a point, there are many apps which are developed using .NET and Silverlight. (thought I don't know of any which are developed using WPF)

I think in two days we'll be seeing MS break their silence and say that the people who started this fuss have it all wrong and that there's no fundemental shift away from SilverLight. It's understandable for the devs to get tense though - MS has done this sort of thing before (I'm thinking of MFC, ATL, and the long lineage of things they deprecated for the next development flavor of the month.)
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
HTML5 is awesome and the apps can do just about anything that you would want in an application for a phone/tablet. The question is more that the Windows 8 platform is supposed to run on phones,tablets, desktop computers. What about the desktop computers they can do more than run Angry Birds and you need a more mature platform for that.
I have to agree I doubt they are going to stop supporting .NET and Silverlight.
Companies are getting more and more in to tablets and smartphones, sad to see the desktop world getting less attention from them. But like all you have said, it most likely won't be a full transaction to HTML5.
Potentially big news. Not all good though I think that Microsoft isn't so stupid that they won't include some compatibility with the old ways, so I don't think it'll be as bad as they're sounding. I also think Microsoft has a big enough footprint in the programming world to determine what languages are popular, as long as those languages are strong and dependable. I can see it throwing some developers off, but I think this kind of thing has happened before, though maybe not quite this big.
