According to Bloomberg's sources the Github team, who has not had a CEO for 10 months, were reportedly impressed by the outward-looking Satya Nadella. It also helps Microsoft, which is increasingly relying on open-source software, to add programming tools and tie up with a company that has become a key part of the way Microsoft writes its own software. The suggested buying price for Microsoft may be an even higher $5 billion, marking it as one of the top five acquisitions by Microsoft in all time.

The change may have occurred when CEO of GitHub, Chris Wanstrath stepped down in August 2017.
