in reply to web-based application or desktop application?

Perhaps I'm biased, but we've had a lot of luck coding apps using OpenThought. It's a web application environment which allows you to build web apps which don't require the page to reload. They end up acting like typical desktop applications, except that you get all the benefits of web based apps.

Internally, it does make use of DHTML to do this, though an app developer doesn't have to know anything about how DHTML works to make use of it. Using DHTML means that there is a requirement of 4.0+ browsers... but for internal only apps, that shouldn't be a problem.

OpenThought is still under development, but we use it in production here, and it's been working great.

[Your Mother]: We’ve had rapists and thieves and unqualified government. They just had decorum.
[erix]: heh, understatement of the week :)
[erix]: well, I hope you're right
[Your Mother]: Bill Clinton assaulted and raped repeatedly. Even when it was hinted and finally all but proved, no one cared because his sexism, and racism, and killing was decorous.
[Your Mother]: I think Trump might be better specifically because no one respects him so he won't get his way the way the others did.
[Your Mother]: (I certainly did not vote for him and have been an outspoken critic of his for three decades, by the by.)
[erix]: I'd like Russia threatened a bit more, flattered a bit less
[Your Mother]: The last two regimes killed a million, displaced 10 million, torture prisons, and ruined countries… somehow it's magically bad _now_.
[erix]: what/who are the last two regimes?
[Your Mother]: Bush/Obama. 15 straight years of warfare, torture, etc, etc.
