If you are going native use C++, Delphi or even VB6 (yes - it is supported for the lifetime of Windows 8 again).

For the rest you have to use Javascript and HTML5.

Silverlight is dead.

Huh, what? .NET puts bread on my table! Too many mission-critical applications rely on .NET, they're not gonna trash that. Every TechDays event is still 90% .NET talks.

P.S. .NET is pretty cool, actually. I can't understand why you don't like it, unless you're nostalgic and/or masochistic and/or need to be close to the metal for some reason.
