You know, it's hard for me to admit, but I kind of like what Microsoft has been doing with GitHub lately

    While I don't disagree, I think gitlab has surpassed github now. I only use github when I'm required to because I feel better supporting the open source platform over the closed source.

    If it wasn't for company repos being in github, I would have no reason to use it.

    GitLab offers everything you need built in from repo, teams, permissions, CI/CD pipelines with a simple .yaml file and away you go.

    If I could get away with it I would port the repos I work with out to GitLab and setup my workflow over there instead.

    @bohr yeah I was nervous when they acquired GitHub, but then they made private repos free and added the other features you mentioned. I didn't believe them when they said Microsoft was embracing open source, but apparently they weren't lying.

    @devTea they're supporting open source, but only from individuals I guess

    @Techno-Wizard I think the logic is to only fine those groups which don't want to make their code public. Open source organizations should be fine with public repos.

    @devTea it's not by accident

    @Mbithy it was free when they announced free private repo, then they close it afterwards, I have 1 private repo on that organization

    @Techno-Wizard Gitlab has been ahead of Github for several years

    Shh don't tell too loud, or haters will kill you

    @C0D4 that's why for that i always used visual studio team services, now called azure devops

    I'm not surprised about free private repos, thay always have been on vsts

    The current alternative to gitlab from Microsoft is the combination of GitHub + azure devops, now we can integrate the azure pipelines to github projects

    @kiraDev there is also another alternative, already for ages, only azure dev ops, before was called vsts
