There once was a biz called Bitbucket, that told Mercurial to suck it. Now devs are dejected, their code soon ejected

"A problem not uncommon in FOSS.... And now that Micros~1 has it, it can only git worse."

Microsoft doesn't write git. It's still fully in the control of an open group. Microsoft just bought Github, which is a site that stores and processes git repos. Github might write some code for git, but they don't control it and their code only gets in if the developers of git approve it. Many other sites, like the one the article is about, can also process git repos, and git works identically with each of them. Don't try to blame Microsoft for something they have nothing to do with.
