We’ve made this unnecessarily complicated. That said, I think the pendulum is swinging back again…
I’ve tried to stay away from unnecessary thick clients, but they’re basically unavoidable right now, especially because of iOS (and Android, though to a lesser extent). There’s just so much complexity for so little value… but it’s where users are. I hope we can simplify this situation. Thin clients are a great choice for a huge number of applications.
I’m still very curious to see what Strada looks like, if it ever releases.
