Microsoft commits: We're buying GitHub for $7.5 beeeeeeellion

My take on this is that a few get billions of dollars for the work done, for free, by thousands of people.

What do the the contributors get? Those that actually made Github worth anything at all?

Not only did those thousands do the work for free. They also gave it away to be re-used for free.
