    Some perspective re: Microsoft Teams releasing a "Linux client"

    With regards to Linux support, Slack and MS Teams are functionally identical in that they’re both websites which offer chat and video conferencing. Neither company offers a native client on any platform. If you install either of them you get an Electron app; i.e. a standalone Chromium instance which runs a single webpage with the URL bar hidden, but also has more access to your computer than a normal browser.

    This recent announcement from Microsoft merely indicates that they’ve finally released an Electron version of their Teams webapp for Linux, more than a year after blowing off Linux users. Never forget that the “Microsoft Loves Linux” marketing campaign is exactly that; marketing. They don’t move a muscle until their bean counters forecast the beans flowing from your pocket into theirs.

    It would also be awkward to not address the other elephant in the room, which is that a substantial proportion of front-end devs seem to have thrown in their lot with the idea that Electron has solved the problem of running the same code on different machines. To those people I ask: how do you explain the fact that Microsoft took that long to make their webpage work in a standalone Chromium instance? If this technology is useful for reducing the cost of bringing the same user experience to multiple platforms, why does it take this much effort for the largest software company in the world to release a webpage to another platform?
