MSFT acquired GitHub for $7.5B in stock

Kind of ironic when he said that he wants passive income. May be he is a little short-sighted?

The WA founded ate shitty because you can tell right away their proposals were not serious. Anybody remember they charged $1 a year for using WA shortly before the FB acquisition? What a joke of a rev plan.

Instead these shitheads just pocketed billions and continue to burn shareholders’ money, ie my money, and actively drag feet on WA development. They even opposed enabling payment for the Indian market.

If they were so upset about privacy donate all their ill gotten FB gains to charity. What a bunch of hypocrites.

No whatsapp was charging 1$ for quite a while. you are not making any sense. The guys said yes to money, you would too. that doesn’t give you the right to call people shitheads or anything like that.

You can’t sell your company for $17B then not want it to generate any revenue. No one pays $17B for a company to not generate revenue.

Not necessarily, not always. You can sell other products to users of the thing you buy.

Microsoft selling Visual studio or azure licenses/things while keeping github free.

You mentioned github has saturated the market, but they haven’t saturated enterprise. Their user count means literally nothing.

The transaction will turn them into some of Microsoft’s biggest individual shareholders.
