can't believe github actions is free

@angristan if the repo is open then indeed they are. it may be the only CI that has all three major operating systems in one

@angristan me neither. Probably until competitors dry out.

@pedro @angristan Microsoft doesn't need to make money on github actions.

They just need to:
- Introduce it to developers in private so they eventually introduce it at work
- Make strong integrations with Azure so their work starts spending more money on Azure.

It's just the gateway drug.

@angristan it's free because:

1) MS/GitHub is waiting for a lot of users to be locked in before they jack up the prices

2) MS also owns Azure so the servers are discounted from their perspective
