Maybe this will convince you:
There was a comparison between our software and software for the same
purpose, but written in web (written by a competitor). It was evaluated 
by end-users and by a team of computer savvy 'experts'. An important 
point in their testing was responsiveness. Both teams gave us more than 
double the score of the web-app.

I'm not saying that web-apps are evil, but simply that they are not the
solution for *every* problem.
