These Are The Most-Downloaded Apps So Far In 2022
ZeroHedge - On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero

A good news for the open source community.

I just feel like matrix will be easier than xmpp for hosts once dendrite is finished. Xmpp has so many extensions and everything else to manage, at least to me. Setting up xmpp was a bit more convoluted than matrix.

I am by no means an expert, but for the few people I use them with, they sometimes serve different purpose. I use more XMPP for everyday 1 to 1 messenging, and Matrix for group conversation of richer interactions.


You should have tried Snikket or Ejabberd. Those come pretty much nicely pre-configured out of the box.

Prosody is intentionally modular for easy development of experimental exensions, which is why people like it as it usually is on the bleeding edge of what is possible with XMPP.

But Snikket is pretty much taking all that and putting it into an easy to administer package, so you can get the best of both worlds. Ejabberd is a bit more conservative, but it is a rock solid scalable platform for large deployments.
