love that linux blogs are now telling you up front if some cool new app is electron so i don't waste my fucking time

@nev I like electron apps when they are built well, like vscode or atom, discord etc. Usually people on the web kinda ignore performance as much I would say and that leads to a lot of crappy apps coming out of electron :/

@buoyantair my last laptop had 2 GB of RAM which is why I'm biased against Electron
