It's been just over a year since it was announced that GitHub was being purchased by Microsoft. When the announcement came, a lot of people (including myself) chose to flee GitHub in search of code hosting soil untainted by the Windows owning behemoth. And now that all that time has passed, I'm wondering this: How many people have followed through with their exodus and stuck to it and how many have returned to GitHub in the end? And for those who have returned to GitHub, why did you go back?
While I have still have some repositores still on GitHub, I don't actively maintain any code their anymore. But I'm finding myself wondering if I should go back for a couple of reasons, the main one being that GitHub is so widely used, I worry that it could deter people from contributing to, or even using, the open source projects that I publish.
I'd really love to know what others in the community are experiencing and how this process has gone for them. Please comment and answer the bolded questions above. If you're one who still hasn't gone back to GitHub, please feel free to explain why you haven't looked back.
