Hello Smart Babiato friends, just wanted to share something I am excited to learn today,
and also see if anyone else is looking into this.

TL;DR
Someone (https://justine.lol/) figured out a way to create a single binary executable that will
run on our common hardware platforms and (windows, linux, apple). Appears to be x86 and ARM(not sure).
Works like a web server with a .zip package payload containing your script and media.

You can download it here - free

Read other comments here and link to how it works

Questions:
1. How much of a game changer is this?
Good bye cross compilers, good bye multiple OS devs.
Not really - but possible if you app runs in the web browser.

2. What would be a good project that could really benefit from this?
Note it only has console I/O no gui, so I am thinking backend for serving
tcp/webpage. In my mind this is like electron that VScode is written in
but now you target multiple platforms and develop in platform you like

I am not sure if the big companies like Apple, Microsoft etc will let the cat out of the box. This will kill their profitability, since it is still at the early stages if it was implied industry wide there will be uniformity. How likely big companies will let this go big, highly unlikely. My 2 cents.

Thanks cKeeper., I agree with your sentiment. Big and small corporations have a lot to lose if this catches on.

The only way it can be patched by the OS is by looking at the executable header and prevent the executable from loading into memory. I forsee a few novel applications coming about.

If you look here: https://justine.lol/ape.html
Looks like an ARM emulator may be available making it easier to write iPhone, Android and x86 apps. in one executable.

Do not get me wrong, I like the way this is going especially utilizing old school c language with smaller files, I am all for it. I am just thinking how the big ones will react to it. I have seen many hostile takeovers just to prevent small companies become a big competitor. Time will show. More power to Ms. Justine Tunney, we support her as Babiato community. Perhaps best to contact PureOS people who are security consicous, they may even support it.
