Talking text editors, I have to admit I'm currently lost to VSCode as well. Though I dislike this class of applications for several reasons (such as the incredible heavy-weightness of anything coming with Chrome and node.js bundled), I learnt that virtually everything I need to do (Python, Java, puppet configurations, Dockerfiles, docker-compose configurations, JavaScript, Typescript, shell scripts, ...) works well with decent support virtually out of the box with it.

Asides this, for working via ssh on remote systems, I've been vim user ever since and don't think this will ever change, now that I have a sufficient understanding of how it works (and what has to be done in order to leave it again ... :) ).
