Something I've noticed when it comes to free software is that people will sometimes evaluate a project, form a negative conclusion and then continue criticising it year after year without bothering to check again whether there was any progress.
I see this so much with #XMPP on Hacker News.
Saw someone recently complained about issues with XMPP, and then when pressed, admitted that the last time they used it was in 2013.
A software community is a living, evolving thing (unless it dies).
@jcbrand I think there is a whole lot of misinformation deliberately being spread
capitalism could probably make it workexplain what you mean?
@jcbrand (and even in 2013 it wasn’t as bad as what they were describing, of course)
Yeah, they're comparing 2013 XMPP with modern day chat apps, not with 2013 chat apps.
