No disagreement there. Not a MS fan myself. But with GitHub, I'm not actually installing anything from them on my machines, and neither do I have any private or sensitive data stored there. I just have my public Git repos hosted there. For as long at it works, it works. If that changes, people can just move on. Right now, it works just as well as it always has, and I don't believe this will change any time soon.

With that being said, GitLab is trying to capitalize on the migration hype and is offering some of their premium services for free to open source, non-commercial projects. So it might be a good idea to switch anyway. Not due to MS buying GitHub, but because of GitLab potentially offering a better service at no cost.


100% agreed, this is a classic knee-jerk reaction.

If any reaction is called for, why not self-host your own git server. That is what git is for, really. It even works out cheaper than a paid subscription with git lab/bitbucket. Gitea seems like a good solution for this.
