Story:

Github acquisition; One of the milestone acquisition of the history and industry, I feel.

Millions have crossed the teenage and adulthood with Github. We honed new skills and world’s most important source code bases grew stronger with Github. Geeks from different parts of the world met here to do wonders. Github become geek’s social hangout page and their pride geeky identity. Code URL are remembered as relative path after https://github.com/. It has become a de facto of Open Source code developers and was a joyfully accepted synonym for code repository.

Lets see if this acquisition is win-win for everyone (Millions of developers, Third party tool developers, Github founders and Microsoft) or a subset of them? Fingers crossed!
