Telegram is an open-source option as well ... but I have no issues with 
IRC, I can see there might be an issue with freenode though ... I think 
most folks will prefer a more modern chat area, ofc

Element is the client I use for Matrix on GNU/Linux works fine ... bit 
wonky/crusty user / GUI experience, same with phone clients.

Telegram is more polished and simpler, tons of bot projects that could 
be easily tailored to our "needs" etc.
