And what is good, Phaedrus, and what is not good – Need we ask anyone to tell us these things?

  • Now that GitHub is owned by Microsoft, free accounts can have unlimited private repositories. Before the acquisition, this feature was only available to "Pro" accounts. That, and the fact that I like to support companies which products I use, was the main factor for me to have a paid account.

    I am no full-time developer, and I do not need all the collaboration features GitHub offers. So I just cancelled my subscription.
