I've been looking for a list of things that WPF support that Silverlight
doesn't, but all I've gotten is partial definitions. Anyone knows where
Also I was wondering... if developing desktop applications with
Silverlight/Moonlight is possible, what features are to be missed
1. Other "traditional" toolkits: GTK, Qt/KDE, Winforms...
2. The new bleeding edge WPF.
3. Which are the "complications" when developing desktop applications
with something thought for the web space.
I've seen the impressive NYTimes reader that was done in WPF running
equally well on Silverlight so, apart from 3D acceleration (which I
don't know of many desktop applications that need it), I don't know what
other things one could miss when targeting the desktop. I guess, maybe
local data storage in a desktop way is a bit more complicated to go through?
Thanks for any response.
