Are you writing code for ambient computing? No? Don't even know? Ch-uh. Google's 'write once, run anywhere' Flutter is all over it

Tool For All??

There can be no tool that works for all computing applications. Flutter and other tool kits may make working in a largish area easier as that is what they cover well. But there will always be areas they will not work very well due specific needs in those areas. What Flutter might do is make develop web and generic desktop applications easier, quicker, etc. (no direct experience with Flutter). And this is a large area but it is not all areas. Also, within this area there will be situations were old school methods are still the best.

A comparison is with programming languages. There are many very popular languages. All have a target niche that they are best at and tend to dominate. If you work in one of these niches you might know C and similar languages fluently but a vague idea about JavaScript, Python, C#, or Java.
