    JavaScript is not a volatile ecosystem in the sense the article is talking about (Linux as a stable platform for gaming). The only thing that’s volatile about JavaScript is the choice of tools you have when building. “JavaScript fatigue” refers to the fatigue of choice, not the fatigue of having to rewrite your code to keep it working (eg python 3). Once you build something it will work forever because JavaScript is an incredibly stable platform. JS written 20 years ago still executes perfectly in the browser. You don’t have to rewrite websites.
