Increasing the accessibility of Git isn't treason. Quite the opposite: Git is now used by far more developers. That's a win for the "Git way of life."

And the original, "expert" workflow is still available for those who want it.

No it isn't. That's a win for the GitHub workflow. People learn how to use git locally, if they aren't using the mac or windows client. They don't learn how to collaborate the standard way, though.

Never said otherwise. As I said, Github is very intelligent to lower the barrier to entry.
