Why is /g/ still holding tightly onto IRC when Matrix/Riot is a thing?

It's like Discord but without the botnet.

>> No.68908640

one of the things I like about matrix is that they're trying to support other protocols. I haven't tried it myself but from what I understand, you can chat with IRC users and even create multi-protocol groups such that the IRC users don't even know they're chatting with people who aren't using IRC.

>> No.68908672

so just don't use IRC

doesn't IRC also connect to things like XMPP? who cares?

>> No.68909576

Yeah it's great, the only thing I don't like is is the lack of a real desktop client. Electron cancer doesn't count. Quaternion is the only one that looks promising.

The only good client stopped being developed.
RIP nheko
Also I don't like how your history of everything you do is saved (and can't be deleted), even stuff like avatar changes. Normalshits won't touch this until riot releases their discord clone client

Problem is: gamers don't give a shit. They don't care about proprietary code or privacy or even DRM. Trying to get a gamer to care is like pulling teeth.

Seems to be getting steady releases.

Fuck gamers.

Point is, as long as they're a bigger part of the market, discord (or whatever new meme inevitably replaces it) will outshine and eventually kill riot
Riot might even kill itself, like firefox did

>> No.68909833

Yeah but discord is meant for gaming first. Matrix is more of a Slack clone.

>> No.68909940

Lacks features

The gamers that do care are quietly using Teamspeak. Why should I switch to Matrix?

>> No.68910058

Matrix isn't for gamers
