Linus Torvalds: Git is a distributed version control system, which means even if you lose a remote, you still have your local copy, so your code is safe, unlike centralized VCSes.

Developer Community: wut?

Microsoft: Hmm. How about you use our Visual Studio Online and push it to GitHub, both hosted on our computers, so that you don't have a local copy?

Developer Community: Yaay! Such innovation! Very cloud! Much wow! 🎉

Trump: Thou shall not use US services.

Developers: Where's my code? 😭

@njoseph Ugh yes, this. Even when someone solves the correct problem, it becomes popular to hobble it entirely until all the problems reappear, under some shaky claim of it being "complicated".

Linus Torvalds: Git est un système de contrôle de version distribué,donc si vous perdez une version externe, vous avez toujours votre copie locale. Votre code est sécurisé contrairement aux VCS centralisés.

Communauté dev: wut?

Microsoft: Hmm. Pourquoi ne pas utiliser Visual Studio Online et le transmettre à GitHub, les deux hébergés sur nos serveurs, afin de ne pas en avoir une copie locale?

Communauté dev: Yaay! quelle innovation ! Très cloud ! super !

@njoseph I never feel sorry for devs who listen to Microsoft.

@lwriemen @njoseph They were listening to GitHub long before they were listening to Microsoft. 🤔
