I agree... I only meant that there are differences, and the style of programming it takes for high performance JS is sometimes counter intuitive to what one would do in another language. The browser is effectively a sandboxed operating system at this point... there's a LOT you can do there.

For that matter, I'm a pretty big fan of the chromebook model, so all the more happy to see web based apps working, even if google seems to be taking a couple steps back in that space. I'm simply unsure if the time/effort it would take, combined with the differing skills combined would yeild something better... more portable maybe, but not necessarily better.

Who knows though.
