Mhhh calling a standard a monopoly hmm

I think we have two different understandings of the word monopoly.

Where is the company here? 🤔

 

Monopoly doesn't describe a company - it describes exclusive control of a supply. If everyone is using a single standard and nothing else then the standards committee are those that have control and use it. In this case the supply is actually options/ideas/ways of solving a problem.

Let's not forget that most things that go in to a standard were being used before they became a standard and they became a standard because they were popular. Using things like React/Angular don't always a standard they extend what people do beyond it - but even if they do - then they do so bringing new ideas that may themselves become a standard. There is a reason why they're popular.

So HTML, CSS, and Javascript are also Monopolies?

I'm pretty sure we have pre-processors that allow other languages. So if we take it to that level what you're saying is everyone should use JS and not use any other language such as Typescript. What I'm saying is that even Coffeescript had good ideas that have now been taken in to JavaScript making everything better. Web Components are basically a library built on HTML, so if we go back we could say "Time to ditch web components and use better standards such as HTML!". Remember - web components came from the Polymer project.

I'm all for usunig and learning html before usunig reactjs or Angular!
