    kmare Seem like it only covers special cases like software rendering etc. But that’s where gains matter the most..

      If this were up to me to choose, I'd make sure Java applications break. People should move away from this cancerous platform.

        You'd willingly make people suffer, to align them with your ideals? Just what linux community needs.

          Is Java still a thing? Let it die.

            The point is that GUI Java applications are the worst. Rather than providing a unified API for widgets, like react-native (with QT ports as well), they decided to implement the GUI themselves, so that it looks like crap no matter where you run it. I guess this fits the Java ideology, but it makes everything written in it hurt my eyes.

              DoMiNeLa10 Mixed UIs generally looks bad. We only need one.

                I can think of two GUI apps that have no viable alternatives I'm aware of:
                • FreeMind, which is an open-source mind-mapping tool.
                • JDownloader (a download manager that waits through the annoy screens on file lockers for you, presents CAPTCHAs to you in the most streamlined way possible, and can automatically trigger disconnect/reconnect scripts to switch IP addresses to dodge download limits)
                People have tried to create alternatives to JDownloader but there just isn't the manpower and user interest to support a competitor with an equally massive list of site-specific backends where the only differences are irrelevant to the Windows user base.

                  The point is that every platfrom will have it's own UI, and in order to make things consistent, you should have a way to abstract all of them away.

                    Abstraction is not free. That’s why nobody really did it. And won’t do it.

                      You can add all of Jetbrains lineup to that list. If you write software for a living, there's very little that comes even close.
