Is microsofts ownership of vscode problematic to you or their control over the software?

My concern is more along the lines of Ben Sinclair's comment about the binary distribution not being open, among other things. Generally, the main goal for Microsoft, like any other for-profit corporation, is to make money. I don't agree with that politically.

So, ideally, the editor I'm hoping exists is developed and maintained with more of a community effort than a corporate effort.
