This article really resonates with me. I've used many IDEs since I started development: TurboC++, DevC++, Notepad, Notepad++, Netbeans, Eclipse, Visual Studio Express/Community, Python IDLE, PyCharm, IntelliJ IDEA, Sublime Text 2/3, Atom and vim. For some reason, I always felt the itch to switch because something or the other bothered me. I used Sublime for professional development a long time before switching to Netbeans, and finally to VSCode. This was a year and a half ago. I haven't felt the need to switch, although I tried Sublime Text 3 and Atom again for variety but couldn't make it stick despite putting in effort.
The thing with VSCode has been that there isn't a lot you need to do to make it do your bidding and it does not get in your way.
I like trying out new stuff, so I know I'll keep testing out other editors. So far, VSCode has stood the test of time.
