    Congrats! Well deserved, in particular, unlimited free repos for my personal projects is pretty amazing compared to GH.

      I cringed every time I see someone choosing GH over BB, unbeknownst about their private repos, issue tracking, team management features and HG’s easier learning curve.

    Bitbuckets rocks – or better say, the guys behind that name. I wouldn’t know how to host my repos without you.
