Discussion on: Anyone still writing desktop applications?

As I keep in touch with multiple companies trough my network and meetups, I never heard of a new project being built as a desktop app, at least in the last 3-5 years, only as web apps.

There are legacy projects though, only ones I know are accounting/laws or internal tools.

But again my experience is limited in this domain.

Well, that's not a surprise, with the advent of smart phones most are applications are written as a web application/web api that can be either consumed by an actual web app or mobile app. Thanks! really curious regarding this topic.
