A browser running VNC as a Java applet is ridiculosly slow, compared to compiled applications, using native system calls and running on traditional desktop. I can't believe somebody calling himself "software architect" can be seriuosly proposing this. This is how you make any modern and powerful machine crawl.
Plus, the whole SaaS idea is bad. Users deserve some stability, and with SaaS, when you fire up you browser in the morning, you'll never know what changes were made to UI and functionality. "Free software people", with their "save the world" mission, are the ones who especially don't get it.
