Wonderful article.
I completely agree with your conclusion: in this world full of electron app, having a solid rust GUI ecosystem would be wonderful.

Immediate mode GUIs belong to the gaming world, not to the Desktop Applications world.

Could you elaborate on this? I'm part of neither of those communities, but I like to better understand your statement.
