Can someone shed some light on why the french government choosed #Matrix and not #Tox?

I use #Riot to lurk in some groups. I have no experience with Tox but I saw some Tox addresses in profiles.

I wonder why people obviously don't like #P2P. I guess that the french goverment fears to loose control if their servants use a p2p messenger. Or is it just venture capital that make the difference?


@juh Well, think about it. By definition, P2P software is optimized for one-on-one communication, and makes it hard to have rooms, or communities. And those are important.

Also, P2P software suffers from a variety of technical problems. For one thing, it makes discovery difficult. Not something you want to hear about a public service.
