- File syncing/sharing capabilities of Nextcloud. It works like Dropbox
used to back in the early 2010s. It has a lot of functionality, but also
no frills and simple.

e-mail client (I use Thunderbird) and phones (I use Android). Should
work on Outlook/Apple as well.
- Nextcloud Talk for instant messaging, Notes for... well... notes.

recycle pile, I can tell you it does not need anything fancy. The only

participate we can find a way to work it out so we can all talk!
