It has been almost 5 months since I started running a Snikket server. I only had to update once and that was very easy. I faced no issues as of now on the server side. The uptime has been 100%.
This is a blog post I have written on my experience https://fsci.in/blog/snikket-experience/
I found @snikket_im project chatroom as very helping and welcoming. They try their best to help newbies in self-hosting, which usually takes a lot of patience.
In this context I would also like to point to the #openEngiadina project by @pukkamustard that switched from #ActivityPub to #XMPP as the underlying protocol. It is really exciting and will still have #ActivityStreams support and with #Libervia be a part of the wider #Fediverse .
I'm very interested in the XMPP -> ActivityPub bridge that @Goffi is working on.
I might look into adding microblogging to Converse so that I can join the fediverse from my #XMPP account.
To the extent that people participate in the #ActivityPub fediverse via (supporting) XMPP clients, it might even become feasible to have OMEMO E2EE encrypted posts, especially DMs.
AFAIK you'd still need XMPP to fetch a prekey (and device bundle) for the user you'd like to start an encrypted session with

Of course the XMPP Muc is still the best place to have a quick answer: xmpp:firstname.lastname@example.org?join

The wonderful #XMPP-client #dino now supports audio/video calls between two or more people! Especially now many of us are stuck at home, we need a way to collaborate & socialize in a privacy-friendly way. Dino uses the XMPP-protocol for decentralized communication and with an intuitive user interface, helps you reach out to friends, family and co-workers, both for larger groups with a server in the middle as well as private groups directly peer-to-peer -> https://dino.im/blog/2022/02/dino-0.3-release/
