That is why we are so excited about today's announcement. More than 28 million developers already collaborate on GitHub, and it is home to more than 85 million code repositories used by people in nearly every country. From the largest corporations to the smallest startups, GitHub is the destination for developers to learn, share and work together to create software. It's a destination for Microsoft too. We are the most active organization on GitHub, with more than 2 million "commits," or updates, made to projects.

Microsoft has been a developer-focused company from the very first product we created to the platforms and tools we offer today. Building technology so that others can build technology is core to our mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.

It's official now.

Time to put on a pair of waders based on how quickly the FUD is rising in here. I understand though, ... For some people the default reaction to anything Microsoft is the sky is falling.. You know, until it isn't and doesn't. Then they quietly find something else to panic/fake-panic about. All user tiers are going to get more perks than they have now so you better hurry up and move your source before your account gets even better!
