Thank you my new friend @2342 for boosting my poll about messengers. It is wonderful, just 1 hour and I got 100 participants!
@Lebensstrom @ademalsasa Neither did I. I've never used a single one of those centralised mobile messengers, and I never shall. All I've ever used for more than the last decade was XMPP and Matrix, each via several different clients.
This is also why I've written "XMPP" instead of "Conversations" and "Matrix" instead of "Element" because I name them after their protocols instead of after their Android apps.
You understood correct, it reads “I like Threema the most. But I don't know why either.”
btw: really “only english”?
How about Malaysian ? ;)
@sl007 thanks, Sebastian, for translating that for me! I am Indonesian so I cannot speak Malaysian as these two languages are different.
@sl007 ah, sorry Sebastian. I know most of people here understand English so I use English here as my only foreign language is English.
@eschatosoof you are right, my friend!
That's why I teach online. Then slowly, I see many of people in my country switching from WhatsApp (and switching to GNU/Linux as well as that is my course actually) as the requirement to join is one must have #Telegram and #LibreOffice. I run this since 2017. I can say it is not pointless.
Glad to share with you!
@firstname.lastname@example.org sometimes, it's really pretty =) I mostly prefer native programs, so for now my favorite is Dino. I also code a bit sometimes for guys from Kaidan, but can't really use it yet.
I also happened to end up with my own lousy client while was playing with c++ - https://git.macaw.me/blue/squawk, hope to come back to it sometime
@ademalsasa I've used Telegram, Threema, Conversations and Element regularly and signed up to Signal for texting my WhatsApp contacts who I could convince to use an alternative and who then chose Signal.
Never used WhatsApp, moved over from Messenger after deleting Facebook. Right now it's Signal, but I hope someday I will be able to convince people to move to GNU Jami or something.
@glitchyhare hello, Jello! Nice to meet you. Great choice! And for GNU Jami, fortunately here I have made a beginner's guide to Jami https://www.ubuntubuzz.com/2020/12/trying-gnu-jami-on-laptop-and-phone.html it was reshared even by @fsf I was so happy. I wish this helps you convince your friends!
