    @eva2000 are you staying or are you migrating to Gitlab?

    It is busy at Gitlab :)

    Yeah saw that news. Probably staying but not really an issue (unless you're reason is potential concerns over privacy issues) as Centmin Mod Github code is mirrored to Gitlab (public) and Bitbucket (private) repositories too Centmin Mod Git Repository Online Status. But Gitlab version code as it's mirrored, the code still assumes Github.com is main source repo by default unless CMGIT variable is changed. Unfortunately, haven't really tested Gitlab CMGIT switch as yet. Probably should :)

    There goes Github. You'll probably have to login with your MSN email address (or get one to signup).

    Since Satya replaced Ballmer as CEO, Microsoft is not the same it used to be and they are a lot more open to the community, sharing code very often, many tools and frameworks. VSCode is one great example.

    I have been collecting information here and there and i see a lot of people excited with this move from Microsoft.

    I'll agree that things have improved. We'll see what happens.

    I've seen pretty much a negative reaction on Twitter from the people I follow and list. That's just my group though. I'm sure a lot of Microsoft / Windows people love the move... and that's a huge group.

    Google does exactly the same with their Google (Gmail) single login account, but you don't hear anyone about it.
    Linkedin is now in the hands of Microsoft for almost 2 years, without the requirement of MSN.

    The new CEO of GitHub will be Nat Friedman. Who has shown more often with Xamarin and Ximian having a good vision.

    Microsoft promises to keep GitHub independent and open
