Make any web page a desktop applicationProject mention: Native Linux Twitch Application Release | reddit.com/r/linux | 2021-04-17
In fact, the version you just released is not up to date. It's using nativefier v42.2.1 (while the latest version is v43.0.2), so you're already missing on a bunch of security fixes and potential RCEs.

> - Finding a mail client I don't hate on linux is tricky. I've never been able to get on with the console clients, and I actually quite like Mac Mail. Thunderbird is kinda okay.

Windows Calculator: A simple yet powerful calculator that ships with WindowsProject mention: Bug in Notepad Involving Asterisk in Title Bar | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-20
I mean, React Native is not a bad choice for a "new notepad", similar to how they did with the calculator. It can even get the "Microsoft OpenSource Project" seal
Speaking about the calculator app, did you know it is OpenSource? You can only compile to windows as of now though

There is a layer of Node that's already multithreaded and that is the libuv thread-pool. I/O tasks such as files and folder management, TCP/UDP transactions, compression and encryption are handed off to libuv, and if not asynchronous by nature, get handled in the libuv's thread-pool.
