Tough choice – XNA or Silverlight ?

leave a comment »

According to all the news and second draft from Charles Petzold “Programming Windows Phone 7” book, initially You will not be able to mix those two. If it is a tough decision for You then it means that You need fast rendering which is provided with XNA. What if You have large number of dialogs with lots of controls for changing settings? This is what Silverlight was designed for. The only choice is to start with XNA, and maybe some time later recode all Your UI in Silverlight. This sounds like a nightmare. I know that XNA is mainly designed for games, but what about business applications?
