Web 2.0 The web browser has been the dominant thin client, now rich client, for almost two decades, but can it compete with a new thin client that makes better technical choices and avoids the glacial standards process? I don't think so, as the current web technology stack of HTML/Javascript/Flash has accumulated so many bad decisions over the years that it's ripe for a clean sheet redesign to wipe it out.

And I think the reason why this is, can be found in an interesting discussion a few weeks back on OS News. You had your "C++ OOP" camp, your "(O-)C" camp and your "Java" camp.

I think this diversity in approaches is good; it will allow every developer to choose his own approach, which is likely to yield far better outcomes than any unified construction would (especially if that were to be a compromise between the precompiled / semicompiled / scripting camps).
