Fighting for the preservation of your homeland is not really the time to take the moral high ground

So are you arguing that it would be better if Chinese was the lingua franca of the internet instead of English? Or are you proposing some other solution?

What is your point? If we want to use a single language for simplicity, English is the best option, when targeting a more diverse audience than just China. For everything else we need multi-lingual apps, which either segregate their userbase by language or use translation software (Which many international services already use, e.g. Facebook)

But it is still the language understood by the biggest chunk of people on the planet, compared to any other language. I guess we need to implement auto-translation into apps to reach a broader audience than english speakers

I imagine it’s the same as with desktops, where a CPU upgrade after a few years also requires a motherboard upgrade anyways, so it’s less of an issue that the CPU is not replacable as a single unit. Also I don’t think there are sockets for laptop CPUs anyway

How is having media specific to one country better than the status quo? Doesn’t this only create bubbles?

Who are the two child bears in this metaphor?

The performance wouldn’t be as good exept for the biggest servers, causing centralization again

In my experience, self hosted matrix is way faster than matrix.org ^^

Funny thing is, every time Matrix is proposed as an alternative for Slack/Discord, people say the opposite, i.e. that Matrix is more a replacement for WA/Signal/TG.

After using Matrix for a while, IMO it’s closer to a personal messenger, since you have less focus on collections of channels (Servers, Categories) and more on single groups and PMs. True, there is Spaces and Threading in Beta, but that is a pretty recent development in the Matrix world.

But the lines get blurrier anyways, so I don’t think it’s useful to discern between these two kinds of messaging platforms any more

It’s much less centered around segregated collections of multiple channels (Servers). Instead each channel can have its own roles and permissions

Also there are only text channels, audio and video chat are realized with P2P (1:1) or Jitsi (multiple people)

On many convertibles the drivers of the fingerprint scanner and the 2in1 detection won’t work on Linux. If you buy one of those with linux preinstalled you can be sure that these features will work
