Hi Product Hunters,

I'm Paul Betts, the lead developer of the Slack Desktop application. We're very excited to launch our new Mac application - it's faster, has a great new frameless look, and has a lot of under-the-hood improvements that, put together, make for a better experience with Slack

From the technical side, this now brings together Slack on all three platforms - our Mac, Windows, and Linux application are now one great Electron application, built with the latest technologies such as React and RxJS v5. We've written a bit more about how the Slack app works over at https://slack.engineering/buildi....

We'll be around all day answering questions about the app or about Slack, we'd love to hear what you think!

I think at least half the Product Hunt community uses Slack. Slack is built for single teams, yet people are using it with their friends, family, and small communities. Switching teams is still a major pain. Any plans to make this easier, @paulcbetts?
I love slack but it needs threaded convos soooo baaadd!

I would love to know more about the team's experience with Electron for this release. I know Slack has been listed on the Electron Apps list for a long time (since the beginning?) - you mention that all the apps are now *one* Electron app. Curious to know the backstory to that, and what the differences are now.
