comment What are the alternate models for remote desktop software?
Most computer appliances I know - mostly for storage and firewalls - are actually just servers, usually running some flavor of unix and running the preconfigured custom software. They're a "specific hardware device" in the sense that they're computers custom built for the task, but it's still generic hardware, usually.

comment How to gracefully handle unsupported browsers?
+1 for "do not detect the browsers, detect the features". Only detect the browser if there's a specific implementation quirk you need to work around.

comment How should Object Model wrapper classes behave when underlying objects are deleted?
As you can see in my first paragraph, I am using interfaces - I have an IFolder interface, and different implementations (ExchangeFolder, DBFolder, etc) implementing it. I'm less concerned about the outward facing interface, though, than I am about the inward storage-facing behavior.

comment Word for the superset of files and folders
You could also call them "thingies" which would be as specific and useful as "objects". Words should be used to differentiate, not to make more vague.

comment What is the story behind Java Vulnerabilities?
The simplest way is to ask that developer what they meant. If they think Java isn't secure, they should back that claim with information.

comment What methods are available to show colleagues the advantages of a database+application solution over Excel?
Don't rule out the possibility that the disadvantages of your proposed plan outweigh the advantages. Excel is a wonderful tool for non-programmers.

comment Is it necessary to follow the standard , take the C standard for that matter?
That's the same as saying that writing or speaking in English, using English grammar and vocabulary, puts shackles on your creativity. Sure, people can do wonderful things by breaking the rules, at the cost of coherence, but you can write millions of creative books while still adhering to the "standard" of English.
