According to The Verge GitHub was „last valued at $2 billion back in 2015, but it’s not clear exactly how much Microsoft has paid to acquire GitHub.“ The Verge also considers the purchase as a promotion of Microsoft’s open source strategy and suspects the acquisition could meet mistrust in the open source scene. The open-science community is also affected, as GitHub is also used to manage research software.
