Discussion on: Is there a future for the Atom editor?

I liked Atom, but actually ended up switching to Vim. When I finally tried VS Code, I was hooked and dropped Vim.

I love VS Code, I never felt that about Atom.

I switched from Notepad++ to Kate to TextMate to Sublime to Atom. I tried switching to VSCode, but found it harder to use and the plug-in selection inferior (because it displays 100s without any guidance).

So for now I am stuck (and mostly happy) with Atom. I have so many plug-ins for so many languages configured and so many keyboard shortcuts setup, that I can live with its slowness, most times.

And while VSCode might be a good next step, Sublime is still so much faster.
