Elaborate please? I’m here just for the open source project


made by a person that sells vpn

conflict of interest.


I still won’t use it, got element ready and all and it’s as functional as signal lol


Just serve static files



  1. If you want “it just werks” then you should use either gnome or kde. If you some snappy hacker-ish DE, then use i3wm or other window management program of your choosing.
  2. That’s just the default UFW lol





This is not true, knowing that you can verify yourself before talking to others and they can’t just willinilly act on your behalf because they’re not coming from the same device.


Although I do realize the misconception in my naming, but for non-technical person, I would rather call it Element rather than Matrix because the application that’s in play store and many more sites is called Element. YES I’m aware that there’re alternative clients, but I would rather call it element so non-tech people would better recognize it this way.

Anyway, I’d just like to interject for a moment. What you’re refering to as Element, is in fact, Matrix/Element, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, Matrix plus Element. Element is not a communication protocol unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning Matrix ecosystem made useful by the client, homeservers and vital system components comprising a full end to end communication solution defined by Matrix organization.

Many computer users run a modified version of the Matrix’s client every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of Matrix/Element which is widely used today is often called Element, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically part of the Matrix ecosystem, developed by the Matrix Organization.

There really is an Element, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the Matrix ecosystem they use. Matrix is the protocol: the specification in the system that manages the resources to the other programs that the servers run. The protocol is an essential part of the Matrix Ecosystem, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete end to end solution of the server and clients. Element is normally used in combination with server to make the whole system. All the so-called Element distributions are really distributions of Matrix/Element!

I think this could clear up the confusion, and I think they will deprecate community as soon as spaces is up to speed


Element. Right now they’re implementing spaces, it’s basically directories for rooms and it’s quite neat imo. Far better than discord if the mods know how to use it, in which case, they probably will.


It’s a shame that despite his very wrecked state of mind regarding some issues, FSF actually hold some believes that I actually support. The four freedoms including the zeroth is actually a fundamental concept that should be used when developing a software.


Is it based on popular browser like chromium or firefox? TBH, if it isn’t that would be a very big negative for me knowing that chromium is audited by thousands of people and there’s a lot of eyes looking after it.


If you want to do it without the metadata leaking, maybe use element through tor, that’s basically the best case for matrix right now. What about jami and the alternative? As long as it’s not peer to peer, I don’t think it really matters, your metadata will definitely leak. Maybe session could be the answer but it’s still relatively young and need to mature a bit more.


We’re literally on one though lmao so, it’s already here. It’s just a matter of adoption
