Personally, I don't have a problem taking advantage of MS hosting my github account for free. It's git after all. I've got backups and if they do something to piss me off it's trivial to put it elsewhere.
Do I trust them very far? Of course not! But there's certainly no urgent need to do anything right now.

With Microsoft's purchase of GitHub what do we call it now? MicroHub, GitSoft, MicrosoftHub, GitMicrosoft, any other names come to mind? :confused:

I am closing this thread. Comments both positive for the purchase and negative have been sufficiently aired.
