The most significant difference between programming for the Internet and programming for the desktop is state management. In a traditional Windows application, state is managed automatically and transparently. Memory is plentiful, and always available. In a web application, it’s a different story. Thousands of users might simultaneously run the same application on the same computer (the web server), each one communicating over the stateless HTTP protocol of the Internet. These conditions make it impossible to program a web application like a traditional Windows program.
