I often see people talking about the fact that they like a certain open-source application, but ‘it’s a shame it’s on Electron’; what does this mean? Is it a privacy thing or a resource thing?

Thank you for pointing this out. Atm I only use Discord (bc my friends “lIkE tHiR UI” and refuse to use mumble…) bit if I had to go through the pain of using more electron crap I think that that app would be a cool solution

I haven’t tried it yet, but Fosscord seems like it could be handy for Discord rehab treatment (especially if the incredible-sounding “connect to discord.com servers” works)

I didn’t know it was already usable. Thanks
