The risks of "desktop computing" aren't well understood? First of all, compared to what? To cloud computing? (Which is just a fancy name for client server model) Cloud computing is what's not adequately understood here, not native applications.I may be starting to use client server model apps alot more now because of the Data Liberation Front http://www.dataliberation.org/ which is helping make sure I'll be able to keep practical ownership of my own stuff if/when I decide to leave the client server model again. This is one thing that makes me trust it alot more - a minimized exit cost/hassle.
