    MattJ: yes, I know

  23. jonas’

    that’s a feature!!k

  24. jonas’

    it runs everywhere!

    The electron app is a feature?

  27. jonas’

    of course /sarcasm

  28. jonas’

    ksenia, essentially, the Chrome browser engine + a web application bundled in a single application

  29. jonas’

    Electron is the name of the framework which allows to do that

  30. jonas’

    that, too

    Well, let me put another way: What would be reasons to set up a chatroom as a replacement for their Discord in XMPP or in Matrix?

  34. jonas’

    why do they want to quit discord?

  35. jonas’

    why would you want them to do that?

  37. jonas’

    forcing people over to something else is rarely turning out well

  38. jonas’

    point is, they have to come up with reasons why they wanna switch, not you

  39. ksenia

    I think that avoiding dependency on a commercial company is a good enough reason.

  40. MattJ

    Many of us are with you on that one, but doesn't make it any easier sadly

  41. jonas’

    yeah, I don’t believe that many people follow that opinion, ksenia

  42. ksenia

    I know

  43. jonas’

    I do, personally, and many in the XMPP and Matrix communities will, but not the general public

  44. ksenia

    Hence that I want to make it easier to them.

  45. jonas’

    so, that’s not a reason *they* will come up with
