GitHub Acquisition by Microsoft

The unthinkable happened last week: GitHub, a version control application used by developers to host and provide open source code / applications, has been acquired by one of the least open source companies, Microsoft for $7.5 billions in stock. With the acquisition, developers can only speculate the underlying changes to user policies, terms of use, pricing models, usability, etc. This also raises questions around Microsoft’s move into the Open Source technical stack and their moves into the space, first Linux Kernel and now its acquisition of GitHub.

If you use Github currently, what are your thoughts? Are you planning to stay with Github, or thinking of moving to another system altogether? Let us know!
