You could start your little contribution by reversing the order above
(e.g. "Gitlab and Github". Or even better: Codeberg, Sourcehut, Gitlab
and so on).

See, Microsoft has at last recognised it can't beat free software in
a direct confrontation ("cancer" remember?). So it is now engaged in
a war of perception. Git is not Git anymore (a decentralised VCS),
but Github [2]. And so on. Accompanied by that "we really, honestly
love Open Source [1], promised".

Now I don't think I'd want to deliberately make Microsoft's user's
(or anyone's) lives deliberately harder. That would not only be highly
unfair, it would also be engaging in the very same misbehaviour we
rightfully denounce the non-free side for.

But I don't think I want to do Microsoft's advertising department
job either. Not without being paid handsomely by them.


[0] In the $COMPANY I used to work for, none of the Web developers
   (save one!) knew the difference between Github and Git. And that
   was befote Microsoft's Acquisition.
[1] Yeah, with that spelling: freedom seems to be kind of a F* word
   for Corporatopia.
