Microsoft Acquires GitHub For $7.5B
“… today the company is “all in with open source,” and requested people to judge the company’s commitment to the open source community with its actions in the recent past, today, and in the coming future …” – Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft
It may take decades to undo all the burned bridges caused by DECADES of ridiculing, vilifying, and desperately trying to completely eradicate Open Source. To expect people like me to simply forget is just naive. Given their track record of hostility, this could be a long game where they just shut Github down tomorrow. Time will tell.
And don’t get me started on the ever-increasing problem of the corporate oligarchy which truly runs this country.
