“Why do people keep making web UIs when it could just be a desktop app?”

Great question. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to re-install Discord again, from scratch. See, they made a minor version bump, and the Ubuntu version can’t self-update, so every time they pop out a minor tweak my ten-second login becomes a two-minute install (and a trip to some website to look up, again, the command in Ubuntu to install a downloaded package…).

Hahaha j/k I used to do that now I use the web interface. ;)

@mtomczak first, the desktop app for most things is just the website in a shell so who cares, and second you gotta be in a pretty specific niche to want to build your product N times for N different platforms (or just lose usage from some of them)
