    You could try asking them in their Matrix rooms. They'd be much more likely to respond there. Specifically, try

    I know for a fact that the Matrix people are working on getting together a Matrix app with your own server embedded, so you're always decentralized. As far as web hosting, that doesn't need Matrix. Just pop Apache on your PC.

    The reasons why Linux will never go above 2.something% of computer users.

    No, Windows has enough bloat to let Linux run faster. Admittedly, I haven't gotten my mitts on a truly new PC for several years now, but I anticipate that Linux won't let me down when I do.
