No hate, genuine question... why do people use #Matrix over #XMPP?
Aside from "XMPP is old" I don't see any reason to favour Matrix. I also don't see XMPP being around long enough to have a strong ecosystem that's constantly built on to be a bad thing.
From a #selfhosting perspective XMPP is far easier to run as well.
For E2EE they both use OMEMO.
And ofc it's in the name, XMPP is extensible.
@aspie4K Matrix is not using OMEMO but MEG/OLM.
They might be similar but they'r not the same.
It was something of the federated nature with rooms in #matrix where rooms exist equally on every home-server that has a user in it.
@Unairedspecifics ah yes correct you are, they switched over from OMEMO a while back, forgot about that :)
