    Default Re: desktop app

    It sounds to me like you are asking the wrong questions at this stage.
    Ask yourself:
    What data will you be working with?
    How much data?
    What data types?
    How should it be stored?
    How should it be organized?
    What functionality should the interface provide the user?
    What should it look like? Textual? Graphical?
    How many buttons, and where should they go? Draw some pictures..

    Basically get a firm set of rules to follow, and build the solution around the problem
