    Agree with sibling comment - the JS ecosystem has a huge momentum behind it and probably isn't going away anytime soon.

    On the web, Wasm has currently found the most success with compute-intensive applications, since the JS Wasm bridge is still pretty expensive. There are already some Wasm-based frameworks like that work on the web, but things like React/React-native and Flutter have a huge head start.

    Unlike other solutions like Uno Platform that also target Linux (as a Skia backend) and browsers (using WebAssembly), you can utilize MAUI and Blazor to target browsers. Not sure if there is a solution in the works to target Linux at all for MAUI.
