Good or bad I am not sure right now but I was just on GitHub and this popped up saying that Microsoft is aquiring GitHub. I don't see how this is going to help GH stay Open Source.

$7.5 Million  I think Microsft will kill Github, why else would they want to own it.

Bigguy

I think they killed off the last one the bought.

Last I heard GH users were leaving in droves ... haven't heard what's happening lately though ...
We need to start worrying about what kind
of world we're going to leave for Keith Richards.

Bigguy

They are probably going to gitlab.

Ronald

How many gits are there.

Bigguy

I think that is it, lol.

Yup, me also thinks they are buying things to kill them. But cPanel seems to have anticipated this and have created their own version of git that you can create in cPanel as well as using the standard version!

And from their blog:
