BTW, this is amusing: 5GUIs

Haha. That is amusing. I especially like the comments on Electron Apps. It’s interesting that the app can’t figure out what framework Google Chrome is using.

Yes, that is the condition sine qua non for any editor worth its weight.

I could go off on a rant that people don’t build proper native macOS apps that look and feel like they belong on macOS these days. I won’t though because I know there are some companies that still thankfully do and I don’t want to feel like I’m yelling “Get of my lawn” at all of the non native app developers. Also it’s somewhat off topic for the thread ;-)

Really, Atom is the worst though, in large part because of Electron. Messy UI, bad general performance, reliance on Chromium engine, etc. And ~750MB of disk space for a text editor, hmmm.

The only Electron app I use now is GitHub Desktop, and that’s only because I’m lazy.

That would be my choice on Windows, I think.

PS – what is the development status of SublimeText?

I remember seeing this joke back in the 1980’s:
