+# Matrix, Riot, Element, Synapse, Vector... I don't know how it is called anymore
+
+Hey that's first problem! nobody knows how to find your service!
+
+Go to your search engine and look up the following:
+
+"Matrix"
+"Element matrix"
+"Matrix vector element"
+"Element"
+
+See? no related results of what we're talking about..
+
+## Servers uses HTTP for it
+
+What the hell? Why do a completly separate server use HTTP?
+
+I mean, XMPP uses HTTP only for file upload and that's it (Also, the
+HTTP upload file server is started by the XMPP server, not like
+matrix, which depends on, let's say, nginx)
+
+## Centralization
+
+Yeah, Matrix is a decentralized protocol in theory, but in practice,
+this is different:
+
+* Everyone has their account in matrix.org
+* Everyone uses element as their client, because all the others suck
+
+## Client is written in Electron!
+
+What else do I have to say?
+
+## Comparision to XMPP
+
+Here's a literally stolen from 404.city table to compare XMPP to
+Matrix
+
+| blank                  | XMPP                      | Matrix                            |
+|------------------------|---------------------------|-----------------------------------|
+| Open protocol?         | Yes                       | No                                |
+| Commercialn project?   | No                        | New Vector develops Element       |
+| Government censorship? | OMEMO is banned in France | French government sponsors Matrix |
+| Encryption             | OMEMO, OTR, PGP           | OLM                               |
+| Monopoly Network?      | Many servers and clients  | Most users use Element+Matrix.org |
+| Good sponsorship?      | No                        | Yes                               |
