Maybe Microsoft should buy SF?
yes I thought of that, but the idea is too frightening :(
Why's that frightening? The projects that are worth it could then find
another home, and all the useless ones wouldn't be visible any more :-P

Seriously, the SF code was (still is?) Open-Source and there are several
sites that have set up SF clones. At least GNU and PostgreSQL have one.
Here's the Pg one, for example: http://gborg.postgresql.org/

Good sysadmins probably do the backup thing properly and so on and could
rehost fairly easily, but think of all the links and documentation that
might have to be changed if SF were compromised/made unreliable in some
way.
