I don't understand why people are so against web clients.  Just
because you use a browser as your client doesn't mean anything.  The
main thing is that the web client has feature parity with the flagship
thick client, the win32 client.  Today it doesn't and as such there's
no way I'd recommend WebAccess in GW8 as a replacement for all other
clients.  But if WA is truly enhanced to have near feature parity with
the win32 client, perhaps even more than the xplat client has with
win32, then what's the problem?  If customers will feel better about
it, change the IE or FF icon to be the GW client icon and then hide
the various navigation bars so that the window doesn't look much like
a browser.  Sheesh.  Web != bad.
