Very much agreed. Later in the article I recommend that people branch out to other instances.
I have heard from some people that understanding instances is a hurdle that keeps them from signing up at all. I figured that an entry-level experience might overcome that.
@maxeddy Fair enough, I saw, that you wrote that at the end of the article. 🤔 maybe there needs to be a way of explaining instances that is accessible to many non-technical people.
Agreed! Although I think it's not the concept that confuses them, so much as analysis paralysis when they're trying to choose an instance.
