I care not how it's done (web interface or swing interface).  I don't see why both couldn't be employed actually, but I'm not privy to all of the technical issues.

What I do want to get away from is having multiple code bases for different platforms that have to all be updated when new features are added.  That's getting a bit out of hand and Java (for all its faults) is the best approach.

I'll let Aaron or Jim comment on the interface idea.

If Jim is successful in developing a web-based front-end that works on all three major platforms (Win, Mac, Linux) then I think it will be time to abandon the platform specific servers and focus efforts on the Java version.

I know it will look different on each platform due to how java works but as long as the GUI is usable who really cares? I dislike very much having to load a heavy weight browser just to use a utility like the drivewire server.
