I can't agree with you more.

Hi Team,

With the addition of HexChat in 20.04 as the primary chat app to support our default support medium, I'm suggesting again that we remove Pidgin as part of the research I did[1]. Pidgin's usefulness has dropped steadily over the years since previous chat protocols like MSN, Yahoo Messenger and Google Talk are no longer around or no longer supported and it takes up 35,730kb of installed space. It also isn't bundled by any of the flavors or any Xfce distro other than Manjaro.
