After Microsoft acquired Github, there have been mixed feelings about it from the open source community. Good or bad, it has happened and Github has already fired the first shot with `Github Sponsors`.

https://github.blog/2020-02-12-announcing-github-india/

If you see the link above, Github is spreading its wings. There will now be Github India, a subsidiary of Github.com . According to Github, Indians are the 3rd largest group of active developers on Github. That is 4 crore developers and 10 crore projects. Github enterprise will also try to flourish itself through Github India.

I don't see why they need Github India. Perhaps it is just a marketing strategy. There is nothing different in their rates or plans.

Maintainer of Calibre, Kovid Goyal was on stage last day. He looks very young considering he is handling Calibre project on Github for around a decade now.

Using Github, want support for working on repository locally ? Github CLI v 6.0 now makes it possible

There is also 4 news commands for you to find your way through repositories


`gh repo clone` – clone a repository locally

`gh repo create` – create a new repository

`gh repo fork` – create a fork of a repository

`gh repo view` – view a repository in the browser

Nice to see the new changes. I really hope Microsoft will not make it premium one day.

Github desktop now allows creating issues from its interface

Now it has support for automatic proxy creation and dark mode ( now out of beta )

Is it ?

That would be impossible with Gitlab around. 🧐

Not if they buy [Gitlab](https://admintech.flarum.cloud/d/117-gitlab) too. I know about MS policy of giving nothing for free. if they can manage, they charge for each search on their search engine.

@phenomlab

I believe you. They might even invest in Linux distros, they are gold mine when it comes to servers.

I know which one 😎

They might not buy one, but take what is good of them and put it inside Windows 🤐

I like Windows to stay as it is. Windows is a good and capable OS in my opinion. Linux is just another chapter when it comes to OS. I don't like them blending into one.

But the trend is there. A lot of good Linux distros are being adopted by big corporates aiming share in server scenario where Linux is doing well.

I was talking to a friend about this. He feels that there is nothing bad about a Microsoft product. They have been innovative with the _sponsor_ program. It is being rolled out gradually in many countries and that is actually helping developers make some money.

> @phenomlab It's also the most vulnerable operating system on the planet - mostly because of it's popularity.


ha ha

Popularity is a complicated thing. Outlook.com was also not Microsoft's.
