Why I Use Sourcehut

A few people I know were asking why I prefer Sourcehut over more popular Git hosting services such as Github or even Gitlab. There’s a few reasons why I’ve started using it and prefering it more than more popular services, and this post should hopefully clear up why exactly I prefer to use it over other services as of recently.
