I’m sure everyone knows the news by now. Microsoft is buying GitHub.
My reaction to it is “Oh, OK.”
I don’t like the people who blindly criticize the move. There are old people who still live in the 80s and 90s when Microsoft was regarded as an evil empire. Those people the ones who say “RIP GitHub”. I really don’t think so.
Microsoft is a very different company now that contributes so much to the open source space. I personally think it’s a good thing for GitHub. Microsoft also contributes the Linux Foundation as well. I’m sure they realize that for Microsoft to survive, it cannot exclude or ignore Linux and open source technologies.
I got to learn to love Linux and open source technology very much. I have had such a great experiences in the last few years. I will gradually share my experiences about them.
