Earlier today, Microsoft announced they are acquiring GitHub, the popular git hosting solution that everyone uses. At least, it feels like everyone uses it. Here’s the announcement from GitHub. I use GitHub and I really like it. It seems to be an integral part of the Go ecosystem and open source software at large. I actually like Microsoft, but I’m not happy about this turn of events. The design and user experience currently present in GitHub are in line with what I want from my version control hoster.
