Microsoft buys Github

For a while now I’ve been publishing my free software projects on Github. But last month Microsoft purchased Github, and that alarmed me. Traditionally, Microsoft has been the mortal enemy of free software, and Linux in particular. The company now claims to be the friend of free software, but trusting Microsoft, whose mission is total monopoly power, is like trusting an abuser who claims to be reformed and promises he will never hit you again. So I’ve starting moving my projects to Gitlab; see them here.
