Rapid user growth marks Gitlab and breaks every record

Microsoft announced on the second day that it would buy GitHub for 7.5 billion, and also the promises it made that the platform will continue to work as it is, many developers have begun to look for an alternative. A platform that has already benefited from the sale of GitHub is Gitlab, a similar site whose sales have grown sevenfold since Microsoft has confirmed the purchase.

Gitlab claims that the first 24 hours since the announcement, more than 100.000 projects were transferred to its platform, and Tuesday broke the daily import project record beyond the 200.000

Although this tremendous move from GitHub to Gitlab shows that people are still "afraid" of Microsoft's attitude towards the open source project, the hit was not terribly big for the GitHub as it still keeps 75 millions of projects. But no doubt, Microsoft should take into account the fact that alternative services are being created in their attempt to exploit the moment.

For example, Gitlab provides gold and ultimate free packages for open source or educational use. It will not be accompanied by technical support, but will be available with 4.95 $ per month.

Meanwhile, Microsoft states that it is fully aware of the situation. Satya Nadella, CEO of the company, said in a statement that the only thing the company can do right now is to show the developer community that Microsoft is "all-in on open source," and stressed that Microsoft should gain their trust as it improves GitHub.

It is expected to see an important drop in GitHub users, as switching to alternative services is likely to continue over the coming weeks.
