Microsoft wants to be close to developers, Even those who use programing languages and operating systems that do not belong to it.
First they released Visual Studio Code and support all active open source programing languages in it. And now Github. Microsoft wants to know how developers think? How to make developers prefer Windows and other Microsoft programs?

At all I think Microsoft will work with open source best than Oracle, Which killed MySQL and Java.

I didn’t realise mysql was dead especially after all that money Oracle threw at it.

As open source MySQL is in continuous degradation, very late bug fixing, no new features.

Following this logic I'd say Microsoft and Diesel are "dead", too.
