The debate is not about which of desktop apps or web apps is the easiest to write.

Talking about the Win API, those desktop applications would only work on Windows - while web applications would work for Windows users, Mac users, Linux users, iPhone users, Android users...

This is another good reason to go for a web application where you can.
