Thank you for this information. The issue with this is that not everybody wants to register with Telegram, then install the Telegram desktop app when they already use Discord as their social media platform of preference.
So I would not take to issue supporting either of these choices, because ultimately while Discord is proprietary, it’s also more popular and thus has bigger reach as a social network (notwithstanding the blatent lies about better FPS using their service compared to other existing solutions at the time which the popularity of Discord had since buried even further before they had started by positioning themselves as the gamer’s choice).
Same with, not everyone wants to install Discord. We can’t make everyone happy. We usually recommend people to use the forum itself. Works great in the browser, which everyone has, and also works great in mobile browser in my experience.
Mainly gamers, which isn’t really most Linux distro’s specific target. If this was a gaming based Distro suchas ChimeraOS, sure, that makes sense, but this isn’t a gaming based/focused distro.
Also, supporting another chatting service requires the Manjaro Team to officially have more moderators. That is more time and resources. And as I said earlier:
It makes so it so that people don’t keep asking the same questions when there are already answers on the forum.
I mean… it’s linked in our Support section on the main website… I don’t know about you or others, but if I have issues with a product or service, I always go to the main website and look up the support page.
