So, few days ago a new technology entered in industry github copilot.
Github copilot is basically a code suggestion software like other software like tabnine and kite but copilot is much more than that, it actually gives you the whole function of code just with one tab button on your keyboard.
What is point of concern then?
The problem is that github copilot will auto-complete your code if it has previously written somewhere on github.
Github is web-based version control software, its free of cost all the people in whole world use this thing to save all their programs there so that everyone can work on same thing. It is believed that open source applications are free and everyone can use it but here comes game changing move from microsoft they are trying to commercialize copilot!
The time ivested by billions of people in writing code for opensource just to help each other and to grow developer community will all be monetized, Microsoft wanted to make profit from these people!
So, i wanted to know what you guys think about this github copilot thing as many developers then would not be able to work on opensource as now and if microsoft commercialized github copilot and further github will this affect the developer community?
