I like how Matrix is easy to switch to and people coming from discord or whatever pick it up; I also like how the mobile apps are functional and the e2e is seamless

I don’t like how synapse is Mastodon levels of hungry to host

like workers (and therefore multicore CPUs) are a nearly hard requirement; which is a pretty tough sell for people using VPSes


yes I’m sure your single user instance is fine, and maybe I was nieve to think a low-tier DO droplet could bridge a mid-sized discord server

ejabberd still exists and it’s hard for synapse to justify its behaviour though

@quarky@chitter.xyz synapse is awful

conduit is much less awful. i have run conduit on a 486dx/133 with 48mb of ram and had a better experience than synapse gives with a 2gb vps.

@quarky@chitter.xyz i'm not exaggerating here, my gf and i worked together to get it cross compiled and running under netbsd on that machine, and it was surprisingly viable

large rooms with lots of servers are a problem, but that will improve whenever half-mesh routing becomes a thing
