  I quite agree, but the cost of the transition will be considerable.  The only
  good things about the Web are that web pages are rewritten and applications
  scrapped at an alarming rate even in our current recession and that there is
  apparently no resistance to any kind of design in the community as long as
  they can get their desired visual results.  Such a pragmatic focus may be a
  good foundation for making the necessary changes relatively quickly.

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
