> The web as a platform is still lacking in terms of User Experience, but id argue its catching up quickly and already far ahead in most other areas.

The web has had quite a long time to get there, yet it is still easier to write a decent application on NEXTSTEP that spawned the web then on the web. You would think we could at least make it as easy as HyperCard or Visual Basic 1.0, but we are still trying to push UI into a format that wasn't designed for it. I'm not sure the ultimate solution, but I get the feeling it will be what comes next and not more iterations of the same.
