I love how I can use the "Log in with GitHub" button on basically any dev-related site. If MS forces us to use their stupid and broken Microsoft Accounts, I'm out. I'd straight up delete my account.
Otherwise, although I already prefer GitLab for my own projects, I'd happily continue contributing to projects on GitHub. It's not like MS can make GitHub any less open.
One thing that does slightly worry me, is what is going to happen to Atom and VSCode. Would MS really keep supporting two very different and both very popular editors?
Oh god no! I hadn’t thought of that. MS’s accounts are a complete nightmare.
