Performance is a highly unusual -not to say strange- differentiator for deciding between a desktop app and a web app. Both types of applications are so different in capabilities, benefits and drawbacks that performance -which can generally be tuned, and, if necessary, enhanced through more/better hardware- shouldn't be the deciding factor.

I can't comment on any putative bugs in Web Start, because I don't know what those are supposed to be. But I'm sure JSF has bugs, too.
