I’ve just seen that Microsoft is most likely buying Github and I thought I’d get in on the situation.
I’ve never been a fan of Microsoft but in some ways they’ve brought computers to the masses by giving people user friendy interfaces (Windows 3.1, Windows 95 and so on).
I can see why people will be worried about their code being on a platform owned by such a company. And, if I had anything important there, I’d probably move it elsewhere. But the chances are that they won’t do anything evil to all the repos there. Your code is probably safe.
Just signing up to Gitlab now…
