Windows forms vs web site

Hello EE,

I am starting an app that I want to be in Azure Cloud.
I want my app to be nice and rich, cool design and a nice flow, colors etc.

I am used to develop windows form application that are boring (works damn well, but design is always a problem)
on a web site, we dont seem to have the design problem (if you look at many ways to create web site parralax, smooth controls, background moving, etc, everything can be extremely rich)

Im a better to develop in windows form and thats the reason i want to continue that way and not to create a web site.

My question is, do I miss something here or windows form app is really limited to rich design and content ?
and can I make it nicer

What about lightswitch ?

i coukd do something decent with this I guess!

but i think they stop to update it since a year or two..
Someone else may want to correct me if I am wrong, but lightswitch (from my understanding) was Microsoft's attempt at a GUI interface for pre-visualizing and generating XAML files for WPF forms.

thanks all
Kaufmed, do you recommend LightSWitch ?  I saw a Microsoft video it was amazing...
but i am not sure if that tech is already obsolete...

I just know its easy to manipulate and on tablets etc its amazing
I only looked at it briefly when it first came out. Like many shiny products, it sounded nice on the surface. My fear, being a dev in an in-house shop, was that we'd get Business users who would try it out, screw something up, and then send it to us to fix. At that point, my feeling is that we should have just written it ourselves to begin with (in .NET).

So the short of it is, I would not be a good person to ask for LS's merits  = )
lol
