Don't start! Deletos! Trust me
No fucks found...?
Oh you mean the MS + GH part?
nope still no fucks found.
@linuxxx i respect your reasoning but I’ll agree to disagree with the fucks.
Although it is Microsoft (they do get a lot wrong, but they have their moments), I think it’s going to be an interesting ride for GitHub, Microsoft can either kill it off with enough bad decisions or take it to a whole new level.
@C0D4 That's completely fine with me.
The thing that annoys the living crap out of me is that nearly everyone's arguments on the side of people against it are, on about every post, hardly listened to and immediately labeled as bullshit.
Because, some people might have different reasons for disliking this than one might think!
@C0D4 Got to say, you're one of the only people I've seen around here who actually respects my opinion (doesn't mean having to agree) instead of bashing me right a-fucking-way.
Thank you for that, I've had to "defend" myself with explaining that some people might have different reasons/arguments for not liking this so many times that its not even funny anymore.
@C0D4 In my case, whenever a company 'sells out' or sells themselves to another company part of any surveillance network (Microsoft being part of prism in this case), I lose my trust in both parties.
That's my main concern, github now also being integrated within a mass surveillance network :)
@linuxxx don’t get me wrong, the whole prism agenda of mass surveillance is creepy as hell, companies playing GodMode with our personal and behavioural data is creepy and I don’t have faith in MS on those grounds, God only knows what they put into github to track devs with.
But on the other hand, it’s also a massive company with enough financial backing to do pretty much what ever they want, starting (relatively speaking) to endeavour down the open-source road from a closed circuit idealism. For that I’m interested in what the journey ahead plans out.
