Electron itself is great. Electron apps aren't.

I think, all Electron apps should share a common engine runtime, or even use the runtime of system Chrome/Chromium for a fast boot up.

Just wonder how VSCode so light (~70MB) vs other electron apps (just hello-word apps already ~200MB).

That's why I hope desktop PWAs become more of a thing. Allowing webdevs to easily create desktop apps with their familiar technologies and reusing the same browser runtime that's likely already running.
