Serious question: Why does Matrix get what seems like so much more love than Rocket Chat and Mattermost, which both arguably accomplish what matrix is out to do for enterprises better?

@Phaserune Because Matrix is federated while Rocket Chat and Mattermost are not. If you look through "for enterprises" lens then federation doesn't matter but "much more love" is given from the broader community.

@JamesLFlores rocket chat has federation. Still in beta last time I checked. I mean, you're right, enterprise has no need for federation. However what I mean is RC and MM had far more mature platforms and it would have been much easier to just build in federation than to reinvent the wheel and protocol. Not dissing matrix. Just wondering why the foss community is ofte oblivious and fickle to quality software technologies across the foss domain.
