I need to comment too. I've heard ofter, hey *most* desktop apps should move to web...
and like desktop development should *die out*...
This really makes no sense for me:

-why require your app to be used from internet?
-what about security concerns when data is online?
-desktop applications just have different UI/and different feel when interacting with them

So I don't see how web applications can replace desktop applications.
