Well we know what happens to vStudio and WPF now, don't we?

Yes, from these presentations 13 days ago:

The Future of Visual Studio (https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2016/B859)

Building Desktop Apps in Visual Studio vNext (https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2016/B824)

UWP has the latest version of XAML, implemented natively this time and with a faster rendering backend. WPF lives on in spirit.

Even WinForms is still around somehow, though in a "cannot be killed" legacy Form as opposed to WPF having a direct descendant in UWP.

Silverlight, though...

Silverlight is actually a descendant of WPF.

WPF > Silverlight > UWP
