This thread has almost interested me enough to give VS Code a try.
I have to say though that currently I’m firmly welded to Atom. I’ve used it since it first appeared and it’s been a fascinating journey. It may have a reputation for being slow but things are improving with every release. I’m running Ubuntu on a powerful Dell portable workstation and it honestly flies.
Text editors have a vaguely religious whiff about them. In the church of Emacs they say that the use of vi is a penance, not a sin. Not sure the same could be said of VS Code.
