   I am well aware. Personally I rejected it because its not Copyleft.

   If you ever considered using Riot (newly renamed to Element), please
   note that Riot/Element has Electron and Electron is considered nonfree.
   Electron has Chromium in it but it doesn't include all licenses of
   Chromium so it's a violation of software freedom. On 7/30/20 8:34 PM,

     Proprietary or otherwise. I understand that tech people don't care
     about UI/UX but we need some nice looking clients. Plus I have seen
     that there is a huge shift to Matrix for non-tech people. IRC and
     XMPP seem to stay into obscurity. XMPP would have been popular by
     now. And what good is a system if its not popular? I don't want to
     message my self. Matrix is the only protocol that is actively
     developed, is Free Software (although not AGPL-3), and seems to have
     a consensus by the wider community. Also the clients seem to
     decently designed. I'm saying all this because if we want to attract
     more Free Software users, like it or not we need a good presentation
     with good interface. otherwise we risk to fall into obscurity. No,
     Im not saying to use proprietary messaging to attract users.

     with? FSF already has XMPP service for their associate members. I
     guess it comes down to personal preference but for me I didn't see
     the same features in all the clients I tried and almost all of them
     were badly designed. This doesn't help with convincing people to use
     XMPP. Where did you go to determine which XMPP clients to try? And
     which clients did you try? I believe there should be better
     resources to allow people to more easily find the best XMPP clients
     - I'm trying to do my part with the recommendations at
     [2][3] (for the free software service I
     run). In short, use Gajim or Conversations. If you want fancy design
     but less features, then Dino. Hopefully we can make these
     recommendations more widely-known so that people don't give up on
     XMPP. It's an excellent protocol and is very easy to use and
     featureful if you have the right client. Denver
