@Deiru you know how horses were pretty good for transportation
and now horses are still pretty good for transportation
but we also have these metal boxes that kill people and the planet and for some reason people are using those instead
IRC is the horse in this metaphor
the horse can't play a movie for you but if you try to drive a horse into a tree it simply won't
@ben Except when it did when we depended on horses and came up with shit ton of ways to make a horse drive into a tree.
@ben I'd compare IRC more to a hammer than a horse. A horse is obsolete for objective reasons - Cars have more power efficiency, and they never tire.
A hammer is not unlike IRC.
It was, it is, it will be and it still serves it's primary function just as well as IRC does. There are more advanced hammers, but when you need to drive a nail down - you pick hammer. When you need quick and reliable chat - you use IRC.
