Oh well, life is never dull in the computing world. Most people are pragmatists though - they'll formulate a plan B but stick with GitHub to see if the service becomes negatively impacted by the acquisition.

If this is the case then, Linux has entered the embrace/assimilated phase of Microsoft's strategy. The tea leaves predicted this when they became a major donor and contributor to the Linux Foundation/Kernel.

To borrow a phrase from a great PC game (Crusader): There are dark days ahead me Lord.
