Re: Visual Studio LightSwitch Will Output HTML

This is fantastic. It really gives a lightswitch app scale within the market now onto cross device/platform.
It will also help in converting old winform sql projects into new SL desktop / HTML web access applications.

im currently rebuilding our in house crm and have about 60% of its functionality rebuilt in lightswitch in 1 day, amazing
