Am I wrong on this analysis?

Somewhat... Yes Ajax can make a web page feel more like a computer program. The problem with Ajax is that it's based off of JavaScript, which is clunky, bloated, and insecure. The fact is that you can deliver these web applications in a much faster way. I know I will get criticized, modded down or whatever, but that is one of the huge advantages of .NET. You can create these interactive web pages using something like C#. If you are looking for something not Microsoft, you can use Java/JSPs/JavaFX or Flash. IMO JavaScript is just junk. JavaScript needs a replacement/upgrade or whatever
