Enough with web desktops 2007/09/06

I might break up with the Internet if I keep seeing so much misguided effort spent on making a website behave like a whole operating system. Because I think I'm dealing with some rather thick skulls, I'll put this simply: stop. Now.
- If any two things can partially overlap, you're fired.
- If any drag & drop events don't result in database writes, get out.
- If your website looks like Microsoft Windows, you've stepped over the line.
