Yes, I have thought of that too, but it doesn't affect NW on my machine.
I really want to target desktop-users and I don't want to switch.
I know how to work with Game Maker and GML, but it's not as fast to get things done.
I have also considered switching to Unity, but I keep getting back to Construct 2, because it's just so easy and fast to get things done.
Especially for a one-man studio (Someone who does everything from graphics and animation to music and soundeffects, which will already eat up your time )
