reaches on the inauguration of FOSS Cell at NSS College of engineering. The same college that produced Santhosh Thottingal and Nandaja Verma.

More photos of . Though we did not get enough time to discuss in detail. I just reminded them how manipulates what we get to see, how we cannot verify if is really end to end encrypted, how our personal information are stored forever by these companies without us having any control.

I strongly recommended and to them.

When I asked people to raise their hands if they don't use , there were many hands, when I asked for people not using nor the number reduced, when I added not , there was just one hand. I'm happy there was at least one person. Abhinav, their FOSS Cell coordinator was that person.

@praveen may be a demo after talks of fsf alternatives will push more people towards adoption.

@atamariya
Generally they are reluctant but we have good contacts with some of them.

@praveen

I advise people to use #Matrix bit I got to be honest with you, it is not easy enough for the majority to use it. Don't get me wrong I want them to use it, but it is not easy enough for them to use it. They need to be at least as simple and smooth as those applications

@pookito
Did you try pattle.im? Its still not feature complete as riot, but has a simple design.

@praveen
Nope I have not used it, first I hear about it. But I went to the GitHub site and saw 3 screenshot of it. Bit looks decent enough to give it a try. 🤔😁✌️

@pookito
What about a better desktop client for matrix? I use the weechat plug in but that isn't good for your everyday user.
@praveen

@yisraeldov
nheko is pretty good, though lacks features compared to riot. I use nheko on desktop.
@pookito

@praveen @pookito I mean, they could, but it is not a real native app, and for some reason it is more intimidating than something like telegram.

@yisraeldov
The developers are redesigning it to make it easier for newbies. Hope we will see a release soon.

I don't think there is a problem with #riot per se. It is not intuitive or as easy to use and or smooth as competitive apps that is all. I don't have a #FaceBook or #Instagram acc, but I have seen other people using them. the smoothness on scrolling those apps are second to none. The layouts and the eye candy are so impresive. we might have freedom of software but they have the eye candy and the smothness of app. That is all. we can get there, eventually.
