Slack might be the most successful one, but Element (well, the Matrix protocol as such) is my personal favorite - a better XMPP in my opinion.

Would Jitsi count? It's a FLOSS program like Skype/GHangouts/Zoom--audio/video--but also has text chat... or are audio/video discussion programs another category?

Jitsi Meet would count, but it’s not added.

Happy that Microsoft Teams and Slack are available on Linux, and use them all the time to keep in contact with colleagues. Would prefer an open source tool all things considered though.

+1 for Jitsi Meet and/or 8x8 Meet (the commercial but free version of Jitsi Meet: https://8x8.vc/)

M$ Teams for me, only because I am the only one who works at home on Ubuntu. The others are stuck in Windows...

They all suck, but I voted for M$-Teams, as they at least have the guts to make a decent native Linux port of their app that is required by the rest of the company.

I'm really liking Mattermost and triyng to migrate from Slack to a self hosted Mattermost at $WORK.

I would add Jitsi, Zoom, Google Meet and probably BigBlueButton and Mumble to the poll, if audio/video communications is accepted in this category.

Zulip

This is missing Zulip, a personal preference.

Big Blue Button can be added for next year, along with Jitsi-Meet. I've not heard of most of the others there.

Skype, anybody..? (lololol)

(I don't like it, but I have to keep it around, 'cos family won't use naff-all else...and, to give M$ their due, it IS pretty reliable these days.)

I built a 'portable' version a coupla months ago for the Puppy community, which seems to be quite popular...

+1 for Zoom, if it counts - it does most of what I've used Teams for.

I use Discord far more than any of these.
