Dear soydevs; Stop making desktop applications bloated.
Today I wanted to talk about something else. I guess it's kinda related to my previous post titled "Stop making Linux user friendly.. sort of". Modern software has this problem, a very huge problem. "Bloat". Now bloat can be caused by many different aspects. Programming language, poorly written code, unnecessary features, etc. but the main one I wanna talk about is called "Electron".
You might say, "I have a fast computer so I don't care if the software is bloated or not" and while that's a fair point, what if someone doesn't have a fast computer or just simply likes minimal software. Then they're essentially forced to use this bloated slow application just because a developer was too lazy to actually learn another language.
TLDR; The web is extremely bloated and since Electron turns "the web" into a desktop application, software on the desktop is getting bloated too.
So what do I want? I want developers to STOP using this Electron trash.
Thank you and have a good day!
