    The tech giant Microsoft has reportedly acquired the open source code hosting website GitHub! Earlier today, reports came out that Microsoft had been thinking about buying up GitHub and it seems it has happened! The final decision could be reported tomorrow!

    Do you agree with this acquisition? Are you going to migrate to another git hosting site if this deal goes through?

    Waiting on seeing if/when this gets verified and confirmed. Interesting if so.

    Ooooooooooooooo... I don't know how I feel about that... Hope there's no "GitHub Team Plan" shit or something.

    Weird. Probably not a dealbreaker for most people but I've already seen at least a few projects migrate to GitLab recently.

    time to let github rot then.

    I knew microsoft "open source" interest was nothing but a way to replace opensource code with their own "standards".

    I really hope they don't. They always love to put on a friendly face when it comes to open source software, but I don't trust them due to their history.

    First they ruin Skype, and then Minecraft... now GitHub? Fuck Microsoft... If the Yahoo acquisition would have gone through, I would have attempted to sue Microsoft. I went with Yahoo mail instead of Hotmail PURPOSELY so Microsoft wouldn't be all up in my shit. Surely you could see my frustrations if that had been a successful buy-out. Microsoft needs to stop.

    Github had already started turning shit with their policy changes and lessened features for developers that aren't paying them, I don't think Microsoft purchasing them would significantly make things worse.

    Nothing much will change.

    Minecraft is still being developed by Mojang.
    MS allowed them to expand more.

    Atom team could be moved to VSCode, and some reverse engineering repos might be shut down, but thats all I can think of.
