Re: IPO 101

What's I think is interesting is to compare this to Microsoft's acquisition of GitHub. MS went out to get control of GitHub, which they were successful in, and now also have NPM under the same fold.

Whereas no one seems to be rushing to get hold of GitLab. I'd have thought that Google at least would have pushed a bunch of cash to get GitLab, just because.

MS seems to have a fairly determined initiative to stir things up in developer land, seem to be gaining traction in a variety of areas. No one else is.
