Wow.
I tried and immediately stopped using the Tasks app in @nextcloud years ago, when it was the wrong kind of simple and basic.
Today I caught a glimpse of it and did not recognize it, pulled it in on my Nextcloud installation... I am very impressed with it, I must say.

A long-awaited game is so badly delayed that the devs add every fan who dies in the interim as an NPC. After release, rumors abound about their souls being trapped in the game - but, rather than trying to escape, they seem to be trying to improve the massively disappointing product.

Confirmed! Microsoft is Buying GitHub for $5 Billion
itsfoss.com/microsoft-github/

Microsoft announcing open-sourcing GitHub would be quite something. 🍿

(Please Microsoft CEO, hear my prays 🙏)

This is a note to people moving their repositories blindly to Gitlab.org: do you know Google is actually a huge investor in Gitlab?

The issue is not about Microsoft buying Github. The issue is about centralization and silos.

You do not solve that by moving your data from one silo to another.

You solve that by relying on small providers you can trust, or by becoming a provider yourself.

Anybody got names/links/wikipedia ?
