The easiest way to get an idea recorded is the best way. You can teach a child to write sheet music but if there's a faster, easier path to recording musical ideas, that path is better. Sheet music is beautiful, no doubt. But the underlying musical ideas are the true beauty, whereas the written form is a reflection. The method that most expedites recording those ideas empowers the composer to capture the most beauty. We endeavor toward that optimal method and thus may discover a more beautiful expression of it. At the very least, we can return to the historical beauty of sheet music upon discovering it's greater than we first realized.
Recent terminals like Alacritty and Kitty have proved OpenGL is the fastest way to handle text rendering. Xray, the potential next generation of Atom text editor rightly seems to follow suit. Meanwhile, Linux distros like Ubuntu have long been using OpenGL for general rendering to great success as seen with compositors like Compiz.It seems OpenGL might be the best technology for any and all rendering needs. If an OS is built on and uses OpenGL for everything, the consistency could yield great results. Text editing, image manipulation and even office apps would be as fast as possible.
