    I currently use SL to enable realtime asynchronous communication between an application and a windows client .net application. Take a look at With the end of SL looking more real every day e.g. IE10 Metro, I am wondering if I can effectively replace my simple SL interface with the Kendo framework? Below is an excerpt of my SL app. Any advice would be appreciated.
    private void LoadFramework()
                // SETUP SEND MESSAGE
                // Create sender of string messages.
                IStringMessagesFactory aStringMessageReceiverFactory = new StringMessagesFactory();
                myStringMessageSender = aStringMessageReceiverFactory.CreateStringMessageSender();
                // Create output channel sending via Tcp.
                // Note1: Silverlight supports only ports of range 4502 - 4532
                // Note: Set the timeout (miliseconds) for opening the connection and for sending messages.
                IMessagingSystemFactory aTcpMessagingFactory = new TcpMessagingSystemFactory(1000);
                IOutputChannel anOutputChannel = aTcpMessagingFactory.CreateOutputChannel("");
                // Attach the output channel to the string message sender
                // to be able to send messages via Tcp.
                // SETUP RECEIVE MESSAGE
                // Create the BrokerClient to subscribe and receive notifications.
                IDuplexBrokerFactory aBrokerFactory = new DuplexBrokerFactory();
                myBrokerClient = aBrokerFactory.CreateBrokerClient();
                // Handle received notifications.
                myBrokerClient.BrokerMessageReceived += OnBrokerMessageReceived;
                // TCP messaging for the communication with the desktop application.
                IMessagingSystemFactory aTcpMessaging = new TcpMessagingSystemFactory(1000);
                // Create the TCP output channel and attach it to the BrokerClient.
                IDuplexOutputChannel aTcpOutputChannel = aTcpMessaging.CreateDuplexOutputChannel("tcp://");
                blChannelLoaded = true;
            catch (Exception ex)
                blChannelLoaded = false;
                var x = ex;
                //RadWindow.Alert("Please load app1");
                HtmlPage.Window.Invoke("TestSLCall", "Please Load SkypeLink");

    Then Kendo have to do a lot in work.

    Nearly none of the Samples work in IE 10.

    Kendo is WebKit based focused.

    Welcome in the new HTML 5 world
