|23:40:53||urgot||There are plenty of hosts that support e2e off the bat, you wouldn’t need to host just for that, only for a larger chat room with a custom @ etc|
|23:41:16||urgot||Even just creating a room off this ‘launcher’ will get you what you want|

|09:43:39||la3ma8Oo||will leag ever be officially have a gnu/linux client ? i mean leag is in china very popular and they wont preinstall windows in china... is there a chance probably?|
|09:44:54||la3ma8Oo||for exampple i had always 60-70fps on windows 10 with this computer now on lubuntu 20.04 with 5.5.1 kernel i get lot of fps drops (using wine-lol)|

|01:33:20||urgot||There will always be some FPS drop using wine, one can only hope they bring a native client to unix|

|12:49:41||izymandias||urgot: the messages we've been exchanging, where are they stored|
|12:50:18||izymandias||are they stored on my computer or on a server somewhere?|
|12:50:38||izymandias||trying to understand how matrix/riot works|
|12:59:54||Zed is the Deadliest changed their display name from hollandski to Zed is the Deadliest.|
|21:28:06||urgot||Matrix/riot stores all messages on a server. You also have a local cache of the messages on your device. Messages are encrypted at rest, but not necessarily end to end encrypted at rest, unless you have specifically sent an encrypted message, in which case only a device with a copy of the private key would be able to access it.|
|21:28:31||urgot||The difference between encryption and end to end encryption is important, and should be noted specifically|

|11:18:13||izymandias||@urgot And how good is the encryption|
|11:18:27||izymandias||have they been audited or anything?|
|13:17:33||la3ma8Oo||https://privacy-handbuch.de/handbuch_74g.htm translate it|
They have been audited, and it’s an open source protocol, with self hosting options.
This means (if you’re into reading code) you (or anyone for that matter) can verify that the code running both on the back end (self hosting a server) and front end (running a client such as the one you’re on now) is running code you expect, and in a non malicious way.
You can verify yourself the messages are securely end to end encrypted and are not being sent elsewhere, or generated other keys etc etc
If you’re not tech savvy, you can trust that other people (many people audit FOSS such as matrix/riot) to audit this code and say it’s as the company claims.

|17:41:20||la3ma8Oo||i thinl riot app for android had google spyware something with "fire" dont remember name but thry removed it but its still better than whatsapp and discord|
|17:42:09||la3ma8Oo||but its written in python so its fucking slow and eats shit ram if u host it|
|17:44:16||la3ma8Oo||security is not the best but privacy is very good|
Completely agree, python is slow, never was built for big applications, it’s designed for readability more than anything.
With JS though, it uses the same encryption standards (AES, PGP etc) as any other encryption, what do you mean encryption is weak?
