Re: Weapon being unloaded
Initial migrations away won't continue for long. I don't think this is a Flickr-esque situation where many users feel their work will be abused after the acquisition is complete. That said, there will likely be lots of scrutiny over the next change in the terms of service.

Here come the Gits
To under-educated Brit ears, 'GitHub' sounds like a private club made up of thoroughly unpleasant people. Think the Freemasons or Donald Trump's inner circle.

Re: Weapon being unloaded
Yes, that does seem a little knee-jerk: If people are leaving in a few months -- after Microsoft's managers are in charge, employees are reporting to them, the MS philosophy and culture have had a chance to filter in (if that's the case), and so forth -- that's when Github and MS need to worry. Right now, it's more a case of people getting upset because of change and because it's Microsoft doing the acquiring - perfectly natural and expected. MS certainly have expected this; Github too, given the closeness of its community.

Re: Weapon being unloaded
I'm skeptical of those kinds of anecdotal first-day results.

Weapon being unloaded
Based on the reported order of magniture increase in account creation / migration by competing git-based services after the announcement, it looks like Microsoft's "weapon" is being unloaded.
