Is Atom Being Acquired By Microsoft


#1

So with Github being acquired by Microsoft will that mean Atom is acquired also? I cannot find the answer to this anywhere.

And if Atom is being acquired by Microsoft will the community make a fork of Atom or remake Atom so it can remain free and open source?

If Atom is not being acquired by Microsoft will the community will the Atom and all of its packages move over to GitLab?
