Given that electron monstrosity allows them to have a Linux client, Spotify will always have my support over Apple Music

There used to be a Spotify Linux client without electron.

I'm anti-electron as anyone (hello VS code waves). But for spotify, it seems to make perfect sense. I'm not interacting with it in a way where the downsides of electron (latency, etc) really make a difference.

How about battery, cpu, and memory usage?

Latency is hardly the main downside of Electron.

I run modern computers where I don't have to worry about these things.
