back to article Git365. Git for Teams. Quatermass and the Git Pit. GitHub simply won't do now Microsoft has it

In all the furore around the acquisition of GitHub by Microsoft, no one has asked the obvious question: what should the service be called after its Redmondisation? At Vulture Central, we live in constant fear of mixing up GitLab and GitHub. Two letters are all that stand between an amusingly snarky story and a grovelling …

I normally love the "X-y Mc-X-face" meme, but I am staggered that "Stupid Git" isn't a poll choice.

Be careful not to install the cut down -core edition, it's incompatible and will corrupt your source.

No.

Git 365 is the obvious name in keeping with current MS "Standards"

But "Hubcrap" is probably what it'll end up being, like Skype turned to s**t and various other Redmond "acquisitions"

They didn't rename Skype. Go find some actual news to report instead of pandering to the Penguintards

They did however rename Lync to Skype for Business, meaning that they have two products with Skype in the name that are totally different and incompatible with one-another. Given how MS then loves to try and bundle Skype (home) with Windows 10, it causes all manner of support issues here when people launch the wrong one then log a ticket because they can't sign in.

Sure MS will manage to screw things up somewhere here!

The renaming of Lync was clearly... stupid. At the time some of us assumed they were going to re-platform or even drop consumer Skype. There's clearly a bit of competition going on behind the scenes, and MS Teams voice and video only make it more confusing. But Redmond can afford to muck things up, because they have no effective competition in the space (talk about stupid branding: what slacker at Google thought that "Hangouts" was a good name for an enterprise conference system -- it's like the 7th graders took over the schoolyard!).

How about HubCap for the inevitable "unlimited" free version with caps on file size, numbers and branches?

Misread that as "breaches" - then figured it was unlikely as no one seems able to put a cap on that kind of thing.
