The worst thing about electron is how easy and convenient it is to make rich GUI applications with it

@mcol I'm not sure if it's the worst thing, the worst thing is how many resources it consumes. I would have no problems with an easy and convenient way to make rich GUI applications if it didn't come with electron and all the memory and harddrive space it occupies.

@sotolf Precisely! If it wasn't so convenient to use then the resource issue wouldn't be problematic because nobody would use it to make their applications 😉

@mcol It would still be problematic though. Believe me we're having some things here at work that are atrocities, but people still use because they get the job done, it doesn't really matter how easy or difficult it is, it's still not a bad thing to be easy and comfortable to create using something.
