In the future, themes would probably not needed. That’s new!
Thought this is only a news about Linux version of Calypso. But after reading further, got little bit confused. So this desktop app is different from Calypso? Guess have to try it themselves to get know better.
But first… WordPress is still a PHP app
Yep… indeed. But nonetheless, still need to catch up with Node.js thingy…

Need to learn about Node.js quick. And React. And AngularJS. And Ember.js. And . . . ????
A lot of professional Drupal developers already have exit strategies. …
They may even have a day job building or maintaining Drupal 6 and/or Drupal 7 sites, but they go home at night and study Ruby, Node.js, Angular.js, even some are looking into WordPress. They want to be “out” before they have to learn Drupal 8. These are smart, capable people, who I’m sure – if they wanted to – would be able to pick up Drupal 8. So, why are they leaving? Because Drupal 8 has become different enough that learning it feels like learning something new. If they are going to invest in learning something new, why not Ruby, or Node.js, or something else?
This kind of #jleb ????

When you take a look at Calypso, it’s clear that the target audience are WordPress.com users. Their users are content with letting Automattic handle the technical aspect for them, while they focus on the content.
ManageWP users, on the other hand, are power users. Almost all of you either make a living off WordPress, or have a business that relies heavily on it.
So while Calypso’s value resonates with 80% of all WordPress users (easier way to manage WordPress, plus it’s free), ManageWP is all about getting things done. It needs to be, because the most valuable asset you’ve got as a WordPress professional, is time.
That’s the beauty of WordPress – the Foundation is not looking to put us under Automattic’s thumb; Matt and his team are actively encouraging the WordPress community, through open source policy, to keep building, innovating, making lives easier for everyone, and find their own place in the ecosystem.
ManageWP vs Calypso. And also just realize about the existence of ManageWP Orion.
