FINALLY I found someone sane! Discord's UI is terrible! I loathe it. How can people put up with non threaded message boards? Frankly I hope Microsoft or Epic Games buy it and kill it.That's interesting. Wonder if they would embed Discord in to Xbox somehow, or merge it in to Teams . Personally can't stand Discord's UI - it feels cluttered and packed with useless features.
XboxDon't see how this makes sense for Microsoft given that they already have Teams, unless Discord is worth it to them for the userbase.
I really hate how there's a constant push for consolidation of companies. I actually don't dislike Microsoft but I don't want them to own everything I use.
This is why I hate Discord. I used to play a game called Atlas Reactor and the devs were very active on Discord and ignored the official game forums and Steam forums. Now these devs have a game called Atlas Rouges and again the devs are very active on Discord and ignore the official game forums and Steam forums. If they were active on the official forums, the places where you can buy the game I could ignore Discord.For programming circles, discord can be a nice way to ping a dev.

There goes Discords Linux support.
Agreed, the Linux foundation - that's like a who's who of megacorp influencers.With Microsoft being a member of the Linux foundation, that seems unlikely. They've increasingly been spreading their tentacles into Linux for well over a decade now. I think they finally realized at some point they couldn't use FUD to destroy open source, so they decided to use their age old tactic of embrace, extend, extinguish.
Yep, if your main source of income is not selling the OS but people using the OS which gives you data which you can do all sorts of things to bring in cash streams -> Linux starts looking really really good with that free free free tingle song with the unsuspecting data collection taking place. Plus not having to worry about updates, issues, versions etc since the community does the work for you, I am surprised Microsoft does not already have a LinuxWin Edition Distribution.
But it’s better than Slack....Sadly that is the future. Few games have official forums, and forums are dying left and right. Xbox, Playstation, most new games don't have forms, the ones that had big fan bases were closed. Reddit is a half assed forum but is semi usable. Discord is terrible for information. Everything gets buried and it is impossible to scroll through everything to find the posts. Plus you get dozens upon dozens of notifications for everything. It makes zero logical sense.
Discord itself works as an okay replacement for peer to peer communication or chat rooms. But for discussions and information distribution it makes zero sense.
Skype for Linux was funky for a while. It was there, then gone. Then it came back, but sorta. Now it is back but nobody uses it because there's Discord. Don't care for Microsoft's Embrace when it ultimately leads to extinguish.
They just want the userbase - they don't need the tech or the business. The sheer number of gamers they can try to get on the xbox ultimate game pass platform is reason enough.I am scratching my head and just wondering why? Microsoft already has XBox Community and other forums, streaming etc. They can't make something better than Discord? Which I also think sucks and hate the format where the information is buried to oblivion. 10 billion to shut them down maybe or convert to something else to bring users for the ride.
I'm not a fan of the Xbox Game Pass stuff. I get it seems like a lot of value but most of those games are old and can be bought for less than $10. Right now you can get Control, Xcom, and 9 other games for the price of $12. You get to own those games for what is the price of a monthly fee on Xbox Game Pass. There are plenty of websites that offer most games for as low as a few bucks. Fallout New Vegas for $5.They just want the userbase - they don't need the tech or the business. The sheer number of gamers they can try to get on the xbox ultimate game pass platform is reason enough.
I hope that doesn't exclude games from Steam/Epic?Also if you can get those users to buy their games through microsoft/xbox store, instead of steam/epic, that's another win.
Is that true? Mojang has maintained a constant stream of updates for Java Minecraft, just like they did before they were bought. It seems like new development is taking place on both versions simultaneously, but with periodic synchronization so the two versions are mostly the same. They're actively putting out betas of 1.17 right now, with a new one every week or two.most of the official development is happening for Bedrock, as opposed to the ostensibly cross platform Java edition (which survives primarily thanks to its long history of modders, but its obvious MS would love to ditch the Java version) .
