What's wrong with discord

>> No.56413941

Nothing. Talking to my mates on it right now and it's great.

>> No.56413967

It doesn't respect your freedoms. It's closed source and proprietary.

Almost everything useful is.

Looks really shit

>> No.56414010

Kek! But almost everything *useful* has an equally-or-more useful FOSS alternative that doesn't steal your data or charge you money.

It's all marketing

the learning curve due to limited documentation/poorly implemented documentation and lack of cross compatibility on most FOSS software disagrees with your statement. FOSS is stupid, idealist, hippy bullshit.

i don't care for all the social network integration
imo apps should offer "lite" versions without needless bloat
on my main pc it makes no difference, i have plenty fast components and plenty of ram
but on my budget LAN pc it does make a difference
i think my LAN machine still has higher specs than the majority of the populous' main PCs
i just don't see a reason for all this useless integration
it's not even botnet, it's just useless

>> No.56416758

bloated shit for something so simple

>> No.56416931

It's great for private chat servers and you don't have to pay for shit like teamspeak. The downside is that you can't make yourself appear offline.

>> No.56416943

>Paying for teamspeak
What the fuck?

>> No.56416974

you pay for the server

>> No.56416991

No, you don't. You can run a TS server for free.

It is proprietary and therefore shit, though.

you need a license to run a TS server

There is some proprietary software where the FOSS alternative just isn't as good (or isn't ready yet). Discord, Photoshop, etc.

t. Fully free fag, Gentoo hardened, only accpets free license, deblobbed kernel.

Tox hasn't got a userbase

Mumble is fucking ancient with the most complex permission system ever developed. There is better alternatives to this already (Read; TeamSpeak)

Seriously, you can try and argue with me, but at the end of the day, you KNOW that Discord is going to be more popular than what it already is.

The only thing that is going to give Discord a run for it's money is probably Curse (Already established userbase due to WoW addons and multiple websites)

Again, write one. Get /g/ to create a logo and then the project will be dead in about 3 months.

>> No.56418204

Discord is shitty and buggy, not like I'm surprised since even desktop version is written in JS.
But I also think Mumble is shitty too, but I only tried it a few years ago.

>> No.56418250

you're argument had nothing to do with popularity. you argued there was no foss alternative when there are plenty.

tox and mumble are both excellent pieces of software and I use them both.

if the only reason you can't use software is because it's not popular enough for reddit to use it, then so be it. but don't act like discord is the only thing that exists.

It tracks what other services and programs you are using without you agreeing to it and will ask if you want to link with them. You cannot disable this.

Some people were asking how they will monetize Discord. One of the paid features will be customized server invite links. Instead of discord.gg/ceWop it could be discord.gg/Best-Server-In-The-World

End to end encrypted, aka the only encryption that matters.

can't host server yourself, shit permissions, botnet, no encryption, discord has access to chat logs.

Right now, nothing. It's free and works great.
But they'll probably ruin it with premium shit at some point in the future.
