The Web-App generation

Software: Mark Twomey, in response to all the Win32 API stuff recently:

We now have a generation of computer users … who have never received or sent email from a so called ‘rich client’, never had to send a postal order off to order something from some distant vendor, and are not amazed by something like a search engine. ….

Those (‘rich client’) people remind me of minicomputer users who crapped on the ‘crummy little operating systems’ used on ‘crummy little desktop computers.’

He’s right, you know — for de yoot, Windows is generally just a way to access Hotmail.
