No they are not electron apps. They are compiled to native code.
It's now finally one toolchain(#webpack)
It's one codebase and it compiles to:
WIN32 (only one that uses electron)
> how is that even possible? there are tons of legacy features in there, COM/OLE APIs, SDKs, plugin architecture, macro system, VBA interpreter, VBA IDE, graphing components etc. Almost 30 years of development. No way MS is going to rewrite all of that. (Maybe the "mobile" version)
I think this is a strong indication that all these technologies are going away.
Also, I do not know what the Linux plans are (but hey maybe a great time to voice that special love you have for Linus T. and his masterpiece)!
