As a software developer, I know what makes a good software. But when it comes to programming them, gosh! I had a lot of night-outs, especially when making a browser engine.
I already have a boot loader, Linux kernel. But now, I have a doubt. Is it necessary?
Update: Everything is not coded in HTML or JS. It does supports the normal compiled ones. But it is not yet confirmed that which executable type to use.
It is not interpreted in a web browser but in a browser engine. You really do not require an internet connection as they work offline. Everything works offline until or unless you want to update the application or download a new one from appStore.

It's easy to design with Web Technologies so it will make software development easier. But.. it will not enable us to make background services or softwares like Rocket Dock or Rainmeter. A high school student can make his own application as many schools are teaching Simple web development (and of course how to use Visual Studio).
WebDevelopment != SoftwareDevelopment There are countless problems that cannot be solved by mere web development. If your experience revolves only around web based applications, then I see where you are coming from, but I respectfully disagree. What you are suggesting is that every computer needs to be nothing more than a web hosting device which is not practical in any way, shape, or form.

No it isn't.
Software development over time rises to meet the demand. The demand drives the innovation. the innovation doesn't drive the demand.

I created my own applications before the Web and before the internet. The complexity has risen, significantly, since then. Complexity both in frameworks/apis/languages that exist to solve problems and complexity of applications that exist to meet need.
