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 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 :)
