I can agree with that. 

I'd like for something in return - could the folks working on desktop
technologies acknowledge that those of us who are more server-oriented
have an idea of what users want?

B/c the perception I get is that only the desktop-oriented folks know
what users want or need and the server-oriented folks do not.

I think that's in error, too.
