Developer Perception to Microsoft's Acquisition of GitHub
Hello, contributors of Linux distributions/kernel and BSD families. My name is Natnaree Asavaseri and currently undertaking a research internship at Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan
(http://isw3.naist.jp/Contents/Research/cs-05-en.html).

As a part of my research, I am analyzing the impact of Microsoft's acquisition of GitHub
(https://news.microsoft.com/2018/06/04/microsoft-to-acquire-github-for-7-5-billion/).

We target contributors of the Linux kernel and its distributions as well as BSD families to gauge your opinion on this acquisition.

There has been some evidence that the Linux Foundation reacted in a positive manner
(https://www.linuxfoundation.org/blog/microsoft-buys-github-the-linux-foundations-reaction/).
However, as a Linux (either Distribution or Kernel) and BSD contributor, what is your opinion?

Please consider voicing your opinion by allowing us up to 5 minutes to complete our short survey. We guarantee that participation in this survey is completely voluntary and all results of this questionnaire will be treated anonymous. As such, you have the right to not participate or to stop participating at any time without penalty.

Once again, thank you in advance for your assistance (Optional: At the end, if you are interested in the results, please leave your email address)
