Terrific episode about the acquisition of Github by Microsoft. It makes so much sense. One of the best episodes where Stratechery shines.

Episode on why Microsoft bought Github. Summary: "Amazon AWS is the default option for developers, for 7.5B!😳 Microsoft has the ability to reach developers who almost all use github and think of using Azure as an alternative. Seems like a smart acq.

This was a great analysis of the motivations for Microsoft's acquisition of GitHub. It was a deal that I found to be quite puzzling, but I think I understand completely after this analysis. Take-away-- Microsoft:Github::Disney:Pixar
