"I hope Microsoft buy Github, and all your worst nightmares come true.
A BitBucket user"
Surprise! Your wish is apparently coming true and Bloomberg's reporting that a deal's been done, possibly to be announced on Monday.
Frankly, I'm saddened that the GitHub executives sold out to Microsoft when they could have gone for an initial public share offering instead. While their wallets might be much fatter now, their consciences will be much diminished.
The only mild consolation is that it could have been even worse with Oracle taking over GitHub instead.
