Thinking about #Microsoft buying #Github makes sense. They bought Linkedin. They want to own all the access points of the tech job market. engadget.com/2018/06/03/micros

@art This on its own makes sense, but also shows the hand of MS strategic activity elsewhere:
for awhile I've been wondering "why would MS seemingly go all in on / / / so fast and so early?"
I thought it was because they wanted to own identity ...but
this would also allow them to own the clients that you would use to *get paid*.

This is a weak point for free/open source software - we have enough trouble getting paid as is without this interference.
