Git is a version control system. Linus Torvalds created Git in 2005 for development of the Linux kernel. Git is mainly used for software source code management. However, it can be used to keep track of any set of files such as HTML or CSS or a tutorial written in the markup language. Git is a Distributed Version Control Systems. A dedicated Git server helps to manage access control, show contents of a Git repository via the web and manage multiple repositories. In a Git, clients do not just check out the latest snapshots of the files. They entirely mirror the repository including history.

I believe that this will impact Linux future and the “collective-free-effort”. Very sad.

I would like to hear from Linus Torvalds a comments on this deal and how this will end base on FSF community progress.

Very sad about this “money” oriented future of Git, but I do understand that we all need to have money in this global capital oriented society (ie. in this space-time moment).
