Another clear example of decentralization becoming centralization is GitHub. 
Git as such was designed to be decentralized. Now GitHub has introduced 
features that are available only on it. With a lot of money the underlying 
decentralization capability is lost in vain and developers get trapped. 
Nothing, just nothing, not even money paid to GitHub so not guarantee its 

Internet is and was decentralized. Problem is that rich companies are trapping 
it's useds. Problem is not technical capability.

Solution is in education and raising awareness. At least some people can be 

Trusting Microsoft? No way. Trust shall be based on experience and I have all 
the experience telling me not to trust Microsoft.

I have seen freshmeat going down out of blue. Google social network plus going 
down. GitHub can go down any time for this or other reason. Putting free 
software in hands of Microsoft? It is unbelievable. 

Large companies trap users by making slow and slight unnoticeable changes. like 
introducing a feature. But not telling that feature will trap millions of 
people. It is double talk. Until people get awareness they already got monopoly 
and do control that population using their service.

Am I free to call my software as I wish on the decentralized my own website? 
Yes. Am I free to do so on GitHub? No. Isn't that fact enough for aware person 
to avoid GitHub?

How about the fact that GitHub runs proprietary software as substitute for my 
own computing? If they are free software advocates why they don't liberate at 
least JavaScript? Because it is strategy of trapping people. They want to 
introduce features and maybe even patent some of them to control people.

Unspoken from privacy issues that they now know where are developers located, 
what are their email addresses, who are their friends, theft they can work with 
the USA spying network.

Search on internet why GitHub sucks.
