Except to run Electron applications you need to distribute the open source Electron runtime.

Just so happens that it's shipped with every application.

True. With all binaries you’re going to be running software that’s bundled and you’re unsure what’s going on fully.

Send me the source for an Adobe Air application though and I still need to download Adobe Air proprietary tools to run it.

For an Electron application I can run it directly from open source tooling.

Applications are open for YC Winter 2020
