/me sheepishly asks "ok, what else then ... NetBSD? FreeDOS?"

@TrollDecker UNIX was designed to run on computers older than me. I mean, discrete components, right? But yeah, trying to run some big ass desktop on it makes less sense, I agree. I mean, considering what people try to run *JavaScript* on I'd say ... well, things could be worse.

@deejoe Given the overdependence of JS and Electron for desktop stuff, I think it's safe to say it -is- worse. :blobfearful:

@TrollDecker @deejoe Unix with graphical interfaces as much a problem as js/electron desktop apps to reduce dev effort on desktop apps relative to either picking a target or doing native dev on more than one.

@coryw @deejoe That... didn't really come across as a coherent sentence there? :blobwaitwhat:

Sorry about that! It makes most sense as a direct reply to mstdn.io/@deejoe/9899446062380 instead of tacked onto the end of the thread.

The intent was ultimately to complain about electron, and to suggest that desktop UNIX with a GUI on its own isn't necessarily a problem.
