Microsoft is recommending that we port or re-write all of our Silverlight applications (not just apps for mobile devices) to Windows Universal applications. However, it appears that some of the discussions on this forum still consider Windows Universal as a platform for developing apps only on mobile devices, not full-sized, keyboard/mouse enabled applications. I don't believe that is Microsoft's intention, especially after using the Windows 10 Preview. Windows 10 has one combined desktop that runs both old style apps (Windows 7 apps) and new style apps (Windows Universal apps) side-by-side in resizable windows, and all of the apps will run in either Desktop mode or Tablet mode (depending on the hardware). It also has a "Windows Store For Business" that allows companies to manage all of the apps that their employees will be allowed to run.
Will Telerik be porting all/most of their Silverlight controls to Windows Universal (e.g., Tree View, Pdf Viewer, Spreadsheet, Docking, and the dozens of other controls)? My company has a very large Silverlight application that is designed primarily for full-sized desktops, and it uses a lot of Telerik's Silverlight controls. We are currently in the planning phase of a multi-year effort to re-implement the entire Silverlight application as a Windows Universal application. However, it concerns me that many of the discussions are about mobile devices only.
What are Telerik's plans related to implementing the full suite of Silverlight UI controls in Windows Universal?
