Choosing a technology for an application

The more work I do around WPF "smart" clients the less I believe they are the future. Maybe it's because I'm working on an application that I truly believe is using the wrong technologies and should be an application but I miss the freedom I felt writing web apps.

I know there are a bunch of reasons for writing smart-client - offline, being one of them, but I think that reason is starting to look a little shaky given Google Gears... Now if Silverlight lets you run Sql CE (or equivalent) on the client I see that as one more reason not to write chunky fat clients.
