Although in a Win7 shop and I've some exe's still running, they're not being replaced as .exe's.

As much as the cost in speed is a though, not worrying about O/S's is awfully nice. Especially when they dropped IE as the inhouse standard (so many years ago, but not nearly enough).

Heavy lifting's done on the server-side, anyway (SQL, for example). Transmitting data's transmitting data - so the difference between the speed of an .exe and the convenience of a script starts to blur.
