Re: Immutable OS’s are the answer
I Like your optimism, but as far as web apps are concerned, most of them are rubbish.
When i compare "thick" clients with their web equivalents they are clunky, less sophisticated, work worse , show much less stuff on a screen and slower. Now their only saving grace might be that they might look a little prettier. But i am not even sure about that.
I use a NON touch screen(s) with a keyboard and a mouse as do 99% of windows users.
They are getting better, but the amount of code required to make a web app works HALF as good as a traditional thick client app is mind boggling.
I understand the reasons for going to web apps. But what SHOULD have happened is that they re-design the web so that apps could work easily.
And can someone tell me why the current trend is to show a small amount of information on a LARGE screen? I mean 5 or 10 pieces of information on a HD screen, really? Just so it can also cater for people using a dammed phone.
