Microsoft and GitGub

Since a few days, there are a lot of rumors that Microsoft is in talks to acquire GitHub. These rumors heated up on Sunday, where the first reports appeared, that the deal is done and that the coding site was acquired by the software giant from Redmond.

Ghost presence

Ghost presence

First a wrap-up of the issue itself:

  • The Microsoft Teams Clients sets my Skype for Business presence to available (green) as soon as I start it
  • When I manually set myself to busy or do not disturb (Both should indicate red) it stays with available (green) as Skype for Business presence
  • If I place a phone call or join a meeting in Microsoft Teams (Yep, I use Microsoft Teams more and more) the Skype for Business presence is still available (green)
    Chats and calls from Skype for Business arrive on my (iOS based) Smartphone Client, because I don’t start the Skype for Business Client all the time (anymore).
