    I love GitHub, but I thought the whole hype was over and GitLab was now the new hyped Git hosting?

      Ah, still a Windows Phone believer, it seems? 'Cause you've probably missed the news but the HEAD of Windows Phone has said that it's dead: https://www.cnet.com/news/windows-10...nce-microsoft/

        No, you was wrong. GitHub is still the number one and GitLab is mainly used by organisations/companies that don't want to give their source code to GitHub because GitLab instances can be self-hosted.

          I'm going to go out on a limb here and say lack of contribution may not be because of the VCS used.

            Canonical is a master troll. They actually want all their NIH projects to fail miserably. That's why they pick the shittiest technology possible, or if nothing hideous exists, they'll start another NIH project which is known to fail due to CLA and other stupid decisions.

              LOL! Priceless. Reminds me of this scene - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX7Yo0tWDgk - in Me Myself and Irene.

                You guys... I'm not even sure how to respond. I'm kind of irritated, but on the other hand, you all are kind of funny.

                Windows Core OS is neither Windows Phone nor Windows 10 Mobile, the last two of which are basically dead. There is a new Microsoft mobile device coming next year, but it will not be marketed to consumers.

                Based on what we know, this device...whatever it is...will not be marketed as a phone, but as a workstation that you can put in your pocket and take with you.

                At this point I just expect people to be ill-informed. That you guys had the arrogance to accuse me of just that...well...God help you all.

                Oh, another edit. Some of you really need to work on your deductive reasoning skills.

                  The reality here is Microsoft has mostly dismissed all the staff that is required to design phone hardware. If you don't have the staff left that can pass FCC you have to use removable modules. This fairly much rules out anything normal phone size and push you into the 7 inch tablet size or wifi only devices.

                  So i will not be surprised if there is nothing phone size coming from Microsoft. Windows Phone was not just OS it was hardware development and I am not sure they have the staff left for hardware development for phone sized.

                  When you are talking a mobile device not targeted at consumers but enterprise. You are most likely talking about something like above. A market that has come quite dominated by Android in recent years.

                  Do note the broad range of different shaped devices required. If it a single new Microsoft device coming next year it going to be stuffed most likely round peg square hole due to not enough form factors. Retreating to the enterprise only market is not retreating to a friendly market place.

                    Does that mean Microsoft will provide a mobile device that integrates into Active Directory? (i.e. what enterprise companies always wanted, but I don't think was possible on Windows phone and Windows RT)

                      We can put some pieces onto a table and look at how they might fit together. We know Microsoft has a couple technologies near complete:

                      1. Win32/x86 support for arbitrary binaries on ARMv8 (see attached YouTube video).
                      2. Wireless proximity dock (internally under test at Redmond, don't remember what news site had this).
                      3. Composable Shell.

                      There is also an interesting patent drawing that illustrates a hinged device.

                      So this leads me to conclude that they are attempting to make a universal-magic-everything-kitchen-sink device. When folded, it can act like a phone. When unfolded, it can be used like a tablet. Or you can walk up to a proximity-enabled dock and wirelessly connect without so much as taking the device out of your pocket. I suspect the added stylus this thing is supposed to have is for using Win32 applications on it.

                      EDIT: If it doesn't support Active Directory, they shouldn't even bother.
