Re: Standalone Application

Some reasons why you would make a stand-alone application instead of a distributed one:

- The problem solved by the applications doesn't scale well to multiple hosts.

- It's complicated enough already, making it distributed would make the whole unmanageable.

- Performance and robustness aren't very high priorities.

- Stand-alone is simpler, cheaper and finished quicker.
