Linux Linux advocates have for so long advocated browser-accessed software as a service as a way to break out of Microsoft's proprietary desktop. Now that this world has arrived, there's less incentive to work on native Linux apps.

Consider that GTK3 has a web based rendering back end available. It's entirely possible that in the future web based apps will be able to use the native widgets on whatever platform they choose.


Sigh... GTK3's "broadway" web backend is basically a remote-display technology like VNC. It's in no way a web application, save that the client is a Javascript library that displays pixels in an HTML canvas widget...
