Its premature to say something wont happen just because..

A better way to look at it is i dont care if one it brought out or not, aslong as its in good hands. I enjoy useing both platforms.

Bottom line, its a buisness not a playground. Money talks.

But that's was not what Chazore was saying. He said that Gabe isn't going to sell Valve to MS because he has voiced disagreements against MS in the past.

We know Gabe isn't going to sell to MS, my point is nothing is impossible. Stranger things have happened.

Exactly.

 

Gabe has a well known and documented history of why he elft MS, why he still to this day disagrees with them, and why he even made Valve. All of what he has done has been based around his ideals and design, which doesn't at all point towards him suddenly giving that up to the company he left nearly 3 decades later. 

I find the notion that "it's going to happen like it or not" is based on both willful desire and ignorance, rather than facts and reality that we can see before us. 

Its also premature to just assume it wont happen. All I am saying is anything is possible weather people hate it or love it. The possibility is not impossible, just very unlikely.

Anything can happen. Notch wasn't exactly the biggest fan of Microsoft for awhile either.

Exactly, anything is possibly in this business, money is the biggest key factor here, especially when we are talking about a trillion dollar company eyeing off a small developer. Personally I don't see it happening anytime soon but I am not the ones writing the cheques.



don't know how they will make a profit on this

Youw hole point is absically sumed up as

"it's gonna happen and I want it to happen and I know I'm right".

 

Seriously, listen to yourself with the "stranger things have happened", against a guy with a well documented history of not liking MS.

I think i made it clear that i dont care what happens even if it did.

Your issue which i am addressing is that you think it's impossible, and i am basically saying no its not. 

Your point in a nutshell "its NOT gonna happen, and i DONT want it to happen and i know i'm right."

Sound familar?



I like how this thread is basically not about GitHub at all.

Regardless, I'm pretty sure Microsoft knows better than screwing it up, so I don't see myself moving away from GitHub at any point.

I think you do, because even at the end of that sentence you're basically going "yeah it will".

The thing is, whenever someone says "anything is possible", they tend to lean towards more "something is definitely going to happen", all without proving it.

See, on the one side, Gabe has once again, a well documented history of not liking MS these days vs no proof that he likes MS and spent years making a compnay like Valve and a client like Steam, all so he could give it up and give it to MS.

It is not

going

to 

happen.

Please understand this.

You are still assuming on how you think i think. I made it pretty clear to you and you are still assuming what i want to happen? Haha its okay you may believe what you want. It says alot about you and your posts.

This is where our convo ends.
