comment Canonical representation of a class object containing a list element in XML
Good point, however the next step I'd think of would be to user wrapper classes for consistency in every case, otherwise one would have to know each time whether a list might or might not contain elements of different types.

comment How to keep word document, html and pdf documentation aligned
I'm not convinced by the XML language but I'll take it into account.. Actually there are some editors for docbook like xmlmind.com/xmleditor/ which might make it a viable solution.

comment How to keep word document, html and pdf documentation aligned
html is needed for the online website, pdf is usually sent via mail or inside the installation cd, word or similar is because staff is used to use word or similar for writing, I cannot tell them to start coding latex or html. If you could expand your "how most big software companies do it" into an answer I'd appreciate

comment Is the database the bottleneck or not? High Scalability talk
The question was whether to create complex queries and let the database return the results or just using the database to retrieve data and then do operations on it in the program. In both cases disk or memory could be hit by the RDBMS but it's not the point

comment Is the database the bottleneck or not? High Scalability talk
Ok I agree, we'll never know until we measure, however I'd like a general opinion on the matter. Measuring without knowing what the expected output should be is not useful for me.

comment Is the database the bottleneck or not? High Scalability talk
So putting the logic in the program instead of in SQL queries is a desperate hack to avoid using a proper NoSQL database and scaling horizontally with it? Am I right?

comment Web Applications vs Rich Internet Applications
The term might not be formally correct however practical RIA technologies exist: JavaFX, Adobe Flex and Microsoft Silverlight. If it's not clear in the question what a RIA is I could change RIA to those terms.
