- Hi both,
- After your recent discussion on Microsoft's purchase of Electron, I thought I'd share one long term prediction I have.
- As you've already noted, Microsoft have been testing some apps with the technology. I think we could see a much larger project migrated to Electron over the coming years - Office. It wouldn't be an overnight switch but Microsoft have been building the online version of the suite, so the base is already there.
- By moving to an Electron app, they wouldn't have to maintain three codebases (Windows, Mac and online), which would clearly save a lot of resources. Who knows, the move could even bring a version for Linux!
- Granted an Electron version of the app would use up even more RAM, but who's counting?!
