GitHub being acquired by Microsoft

Poll created by cdspatial Champion on Jun 4, 2018

I was announced today that GitHub Inc was being acquired by Microsoft.  GitHub is used by many to share and collaborate code, including GIS users.  For example, ESRI posts code there.


Some see this purchase as an ominous direction, as Microsoft has been an opponent of open-source in the past.  What do you think?
