GitHub has lowered its pricing plans drastically and made its core features free for everyone, even for private development. GitHub CEO Nat Friedman announced a plan that has been in the works for some time, noting that the changes were not related to the COVID-19 worldwide health crisis. The new structure allows access to GitHub's private repositories with unlimited collaborators for all GitHub accounts. Microsoft purchased GitHub, a software hosting and version-control platform, for $7.5 billion in June 2018.

This is not on this article, but the poll. So the Linux community thinks everyone should be compelled by law to vote? I am shocked! The Constitution gives us the right to dissent, and not voting can be dissent. If forced to vote, I will vote "none of the above".

Clarification on Poll

Hello jymm,

Thank you for your comment!

Since your post will remain with this LinuxInsider article indefinitely, and the ECT News Network Reader Survey is updated weekly, we'd like to share the question, answers and results you refer to, so readers of your comment will have context after the survey is replaced.

Question: How should national elections be conducted in the U.S.?
- Mail-in ballots should be sent to every registered voter. (17%)
- Mail-in ballots should be sent to any voter on request. (6%)
- A secure electronic voting system should be an option. (6%)
- In-person voting should be required except for specific exceptions. (18%)
- States should set their own rules. (4%)
- Every citizen should be required to vote, with unexcused failure penalized. (49%)

At the time of this writing there were 180 total responses, and the poll was available from April 13-18, 2020. The poll will continue until April 20, 2020, so the results listed above are not final.

To view the final results of this poll after April 20, 2020, and other ECT News Network Reader Surveys, please visit https://www.ectnews.com/perl/surveys

Although the question is specific to U.S. national elections, the poll is available to everyone. We'd also like to point out that this poll runs on all of the ECT News Network websites, not only LinuxInsider. Therefore, it's likely that some responses are from readers located outside the U.S. -- and undoubtedly some responses are from readers of our other websites. Again, we mention this only for context to help everyone draw their own conclusions.

Best Regards,

Thank you for the update. I guess there were many things I didn't know or consider. Again thanks.

How important is the availability of curbside service when you consider a physical store to do your shopping?
Critically Important - I will not shop at an establishment that does not provide curbside service.
Quite Important - During the pandemic I prefer not to go inside a physical location. Still, I will consider a business that does not offer curbside service.
Somewhat Important - I like a curbside option, but itís not part of my decision-making process when I choose where to shop.
Not Important - I do not use curbside pickup. When I go out to shop I want to select everything myself.
