I just read that Microsoft is acquiring GitHub hoping that was fake news. Unfortunately I have seen and experienced first hand enough of Microsoft love for open source for a life time to avoid everything that involves them. They have been trying to kill, sabotage, spread FUD and corrupt officials (at least in Finland) to hurt open source and free software, and yet they lost. GNU/Linux is the worlds most popular operating system if you calculate all the devices that are running an OS.

GitHub deal is even at best a kiss of death. Soon all users will be required to install Microsoft malware and open Microsoft accounts to keep using GitHub, all all their information is for sale.

I am leaving GitHub and moving my projects to Git Labs before I close the account.

So long and thanks for all the fish. RIP GitHub.
