Why Flutter, though? What’s wrong with good ol’ GTK and Qt? Isn’t a whole Flutter runtime too much?

Yeah why Flutter? Sure the UI looks nice, even better than the old one, but isn’t speed more important than looks especially in an installer? Also,

First introduced in 2010, Ubiquity is functional and moderately fast, but it is very much of its time; i.e., its ancient codebase is said to be ‘cumbersome’ to work with.

So 11 year old code is ancient? Don’t we use tools and languages whose codebase is even older than that? Does that mean we should replace Linux because it’s old?

Bullshit excuse if you ask me…

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
