What do Microsoft really think about open-source? Is Microsoft attempting to centralise open-source through "Embrace, extend, and finally extinguish" tactics which they are known for?
#Comment: Github, via extension of its owner Microsoft, is owned by some of the most regressive, monopolistic, oligarchic/kleptocratic, big-finance forces on the planet - the likes of Blackrock, Berkshire, Gates, etc. It is very much in their interest to centralize and control open source/free software (free as in freedom), and they have a track record of doing just that. To say it more poignantly: Microsoft is a direct driver of perverse wealth inequality, endless wars and centralisation of power which effectively destroys any resemblance of democracy everywhere. Behind the clean corporate facade, they are just yet another mafia.
