I just call it Microsoft GitHub these days. Does half the job of communicating the risks of it being a hard dependency for FOSS projects in particular.
@raucao CW tech stuff.
@funnypanja Feel free to mute me. Not CWing something like that.
@raucao totally with you. Look what they did to skype.
So for those who cannot/wantnot self-host, feel free to recommend Codeberg. Good folks, I know some of them personally. And to them it's important to stay "self sufficient" and not let the "big (bad) guys" in. Funding comes from members. They're non-profit (hopefully soon "officially recognized" so one can even reduce tax by funding them).
@raucao how long until they start to make money with targeted ads out of user data?
@raucao I like using Githubsoft to enforce Microsoft owning GitHub.
@raucao this is exactly what i say. I don't care who owns it. It is a proprietary platform for FOSS projects. It shouldn't be tolerated
