Note how I wrote KeePass XC, not the - completely outdated and old - KeePass ;)

Looks like Bitwarden needs a server... I'm not touching that. I keep my KeePass file synced using Syncthing. No need for yet another online account. Also, I need features like OpenDesktop Secret Service, ssh-askpass support and KeeShare.

If you are worried about a 3rd party having access to your Bitwarden passwords you can setup a locally hosted server. I know it is a bit more work, but this way you are completely in control of your passwords.

Personally I found that Bitwarden works best for me. I do 80% of my work on Linux and Bitwarden I haven't had any issues with it on Linux. So it is a solid replacement for KeePass XC

Again, why should I go through the hassle of setting up and configuring a server software when I can literally have a synchronized single file? Sometimes it seems to me that people are just hellbent these days to shove everything into the cloud or a server, no matter what.
