"The option isn't Electron vs native, it's Electron vs nothing"

Well, no. If it wasn't for #Electron, developers who want to make "apps" would actually go and learn how to make apps, you know.

Look at how native apps used to flourish on the desktop back when Electron (and the "modern" web) wasn't a thing. Look at the mobile app market, where Electron still isn't a thing.

@bugaevc I sort of agree with you, but what about Linux/FreeBSD? Most app devs ship a Win version, maybe an OSX one and then don't bother.

@SiberiaBreadFactory @bugaevc QT is pretty good, haven't heard many good things about the non-C++ bindings, also the subscription fees (to use it commercially) are pretty big so I'm no shock over why Electron is used
