The main issue with electron apps is that the UI is rendered using a full web browser, and chromium at that. Running nodejs while still heavy isnt even a significant part of the electron app runtime. Switching out to something that is more optimized for this use is an option but then it looses its key attraction of using HTML/CSS to develop your app.
