Not many involved in tech can have missed that that Microsoft has acquired GitHub, here follow some quick thoughts on the subject.

Its an interesting *development but I don't think this will change things much more then give Microsoft another valuable product and drive more projects over to alternatives like GitLab (something we have already seen happening). In that sense the acquisition can be beneficial for open/free software code hosting repository services.

*its likely be beneficial for the Microsoft stock
*have in any case personally thought/considered GitHub from the beginning as a closed, proprietary product.

Can in general state that I have certain mixed feelings towards Microsoft today.
