@rysiek Hmm. Mixed feelings about this one... In your opinion, is this an all-bad thing or are there some uptakes to it?
@h3artbl33d look, I recognize that many places in this world have no reasonable banking services available, and that a lot of people have no access to digital payments that would otherwise make their lives better.
If you ever tried sending any money to Africa, or, you know, between EU and US, you know what I mean here.
At the same time, Signal Desktop remains crap ("optimizing database" ⏳, and then words appear seconds after I type them) and Signal mobile tends to fall minutes behind Desktop.
@h3artbl33d plus, there are no Signal clients for a number of privacy-friendly platforms (SailfishOS, postmarketOS, Librem5, PInePhone, or you know: any mobile OS that is not Android or iOS).
*And* moxie refuses to federate because "too much work to keep up".
Dunno, maybe instead of going full crypto Signal could fix Desktop (and drop Electron in the process), and write a client for at least one non-duopolistic mobile platform?
But Moxie has many times expressed not wanting 3rd party clients using their branding OR service. Even if they're unmodified builds made by f-droid...
That's right. Everyone has to move to a new messenger again because changing the client isn't possible.
Signal is effectively a "source available" project that sometimes accepts PR's.
Sure, it's technically open source, but nobody is going to use your fork after Moxie tells you to go host your own Signal Server.
Jami has the opendht and turn server available in the advanced UI. Still hard for a tech newbie, but at least it doesn't require sending someone a sketch unsigned appstore package.
