Github releases lots of their code as open source, but you can't
"install their whole business" locally, no.
Loads of FLOSS projects are completely fine, and rather thrive on
Github. Unlimited free hosting for open source projects with lots of
useful features, IMO, is rather nice.
To be clear, I'm not advocating for Xfce switching to Github, I'm just
pointing out that it's purely a political/ethical/emotional decision
rather than a technical/user-centric one. Personally I lean towards
pragmatism rather than having a strong political stance, but I can
appreciate that some people are more passionate about this than I am.
