It's not an "app", it's the website for #Etcher, a "native" app that's actually a bunch of webjunk crammed into #Electron to make it behave vaguely like a native app. #MakeJavascriptOptional!


@strypey Oh I saw that, it confused me a ton. A USB image burning application as a Web App?? Wtf even.. And and other distros link to that as a recommended application for creating bootable USB drives...

@stevenroose it's actually a very good UI for newbies trying to install GNU/Linux the first few times. The fact it's cross platform allows distros to offer one set of install instructions regardless of what OS the newbie starts on. It's just a shame it uses Electron instead of something like Qt or GTK that is also cross-platform and fully free code. What I was mainly commenting on was the homepage thinking it's an app ;P
