    Disappointing that its not GitLab but at least its something

      There's been mirrors on there for a while for the big projects - but it'll be nice not having commits that reference SVN IDs like this one:

        Microsoft are guaranteed to fsck us all over at some point but luckily the nature of Git means that it will be easy to move everything to other servers when the time comes, including commit history etc.

          If they are using GitHubs issues system it's not going to be easy though.

            As long as Satya Nadella is CEO, its not likely. But after him...........if MSFT get Ballmer Chapter 2 going, then yes, I see a lot of problems.

            It's kind of like the kings of Israel. One good one begat one bad one and so on and so on.

                They don't matter any more. I trust they'll try to survive by any means necessary, which will include embracing Linux. And they've started with it, but I don't think they're actually fast enough.

                Linux is coming in harder than ever - not on the current top-of-the-line PCs, which many have hoped for and for many years - but on the next generation of computers and Microsoft isn't being seen anywhere near those... All these Arm-based mini PCs (see Raspberry Pi & Co.) run almost exclusively Linux. While these are merely toys for many do these only get more powerful and can already do what most office PCs and servers can do. All completely without Microsoft and the situation being turned around and Linux being absolutely dominant, for prices as little as $20-$40 a piece.

                  The statistics don't support this at all.

                  Microsoft is well aware of that and so are their shareholders. The managed to shift their revenue structure to cloud and other software offerings like Office365 and Dynamics as shown here. It's been a trend for quite a while too. Even Windows saw growth so it's situation is not dire at all.

                  There are versions of Windows 10 for ARM even with emulation layers for x86 and x64 software. They are not perfect but it's a start. The general shift from x86-like architectures combined with recent Intel supply problems probably pushed Microsoft to have an alternative ready.

                    You're looking at the wrong statistics. I'm talking about the future, you're looking at yesterday's numbers. Microsoft once had a UNIX OS, too, but nobody wanted it. Where do you see people wanting to run a Microsoft OS on their Arm computers?
