I may try it soon, but MS exhausted my patience quota for today (see below).
Qt Quick - most promising, all desktops + some mobile (ported to Android but not sure how usable that is yet).
Qt Quick -> GWT would be cool to support web apps. One try: http://qtwui.sourceforge.net/
Qt for Android is already well on its way:
It's been ported to IOS, but pre-alpha completeness:
Plus Qt's in WebOS: http://opensource.palm.com/2.0.0/index.html
But souped up Webkit, with a very nice designer is very compelling.
Good comprehensive list:

I have to uninstall Silverlight before installing a point upgrade? All this to see a video about their other product?
Additionally, I have to restart Firefox in 32-bit mode since they (and only they as far as I've run into) don't have a 64-bit plugin.
