@Normandy Depends on what you want to accomplish. Misskey is clearly the "go bananas with features" project. Polls, lists, even calendar. Written in some absurd language nobody ever heard about. Pleroma is a little sick with the featuritis too, but it's not cancer (yet): the only useless feature it has is chat. It's the leanest for single-user instances on cheap VMs. And Mastodon, well... Gargon fighting imaginary nazis in his own mind and everyone else is alone for the ride. Better learn to trust Mongo!
