re: What's your opinion on Microsoft's GitHub Acquisition? VIEW POST


I would prefer if they didn't, considering Microsoft's past treatment of other projects (LinkedIn, Skype).


They haven't really done much to LinkedIn besides bundling it into another product offering. LinkedIn was always really terrible. Skype was okay, so yeah agreed they ruined that. But that was also many years ago.


Yeah, if anything I think MS has had a good impact on LinkedIn (or maybe it couldn't get worse). But in general I think MS's reputation is worse than its recent moves.

Of course, there are probably still a few things to point to which could make you say "Yeah definitely still as evil or anti-user as ever"
