Microsoft officials said GitHub's mission will not change. The service will remain independent. It will continue to be a platform and cloud neutral. It is noted that Nat Friedman will become the "Chairman Emeritus" of GitHub. GitHub is Microsoft's property since 2018. Friedman's management caused a number of changes to GitHub welcomed by the developer community.

However, these are not all changes.
