      smaller in download size, RAM usage on Windows is worse: https://www.tryphotino.io/#photino-vs-electron (I’m picking out Windows especially here because on Linux I can just build native stuff whereas on windows there lies a life of pain)

        RAM usage on Windows is worse

        It is only marginally worse: 68MB vs 53MB. I guess the real test is in how it would compare in real-world apps. But that would be too early to tell.

          yeah, RAM bloat is like the #1 meh criterion for electron (cf Slack) and so if they can’t even get the hello world smaller atm…
