Still a rumor so far, but yeah, it's going to get pretty interesting. The relationship between Microsoft and open source is already pretty good, so is their relationship with GitHub. I mean, it's the biggest company using GitHub already, they switched most of their source code to Git, improved it so it would work with the Windows source code, and they're even in the biggest commiters to the Linux kernel. So yeah. They even almost would buy Linux at this point. But yeah, the biggest problem is how they would handle DMCAs, but eh, who knows? Maybe they would end up like Tumblr when they got bought by Yahoo! and nothing really happened.

Anyway. installing your own instance of GitLab is a f***ing pain in the ass even on a brand new VPS, way too much dependencies, use Gogs or whatever thing they forked it as instead. I'm using it at the job and it's magic. Also using Visual Studio Code, it's a pretty nice IDE, except I dunno what would happen to Atom...
