OS SDKs Are Considered Harmful!?

But it seems clear to me that OS-specific SDKs are becoming a liability for desktop OS vendors.
Developers have clearly signaled their intentions: they want to make cross platform desktop applications that work right now using web technologies.
Does that make any sense to you at all? That sounds like crazy talk to me! Am I the only sane man in a crazy world?

Nope, you haven't been following the rise of perf of JS in browsers and the fact that browser apps have access to worker threads that effectively make use of multi-core cpus and even have been starting to get more direct access to the GPU. Why do you think Chromebooks even exist?
