    With GitHub Acquisition, Microsoft Moves Fully into the Open Source Community - Petri
    Microsoft is buying GitHub, an online code repository company that is popular collaboration tool and a social network for developers.
    • I’m interested to see how this works. I know that MS has been doing great things with the open source community, and I think the GitHub acquisition will only bolster that.

      • We will see in the next months what is the Microsoft approach to this open source repository, now some evelopers are moving to different platform like GitLab.

      • It is true that MS is doing great things in open source community. However, this move now opens the door for a second big development platform. Not every MS competitor will feel comfortable to contribute to Microsoft’s platform and there are still many hardcore open source advocates who believe that any company who sells closed sourced software can’t be trusted. Nevertheless, this is a brilliant move of Nadella, perhaps even better than the acquisition of LinkedIn. If you compare this do Ballmer’s acquisitions… Once more Microsoft is one step ahead of Google and Amazon.
