    I ran my own Matrix homeserver for a while but had issue with the invasive way they pushed "federation" at me, and stubbornly defended the practice without a good explanation when I asked why. I stayed in the matrix dev chat for a few days as a steady stream of other ops asked the same questions. It's not really opensource and not really great. They have had plenty of time to sort out easy things like account management but it was still largely manual when I left. Rocketchat was a little better but has similar commercial aspirations which turned me off to it.
    I used pidgin for many years and still do. I've found xmpp protocol is only as good as the front end.
