Discussion on: What is the best code editor?

I'd suggest that this is dependent on what you want to do and what your requirements are. Use the best tools for your job. For some, this will be the likes of Visual Studio Code. Others will use Eclipse, JetBrains solutions, 'full-fat' Visual Studio or even something like Vim, emacs or Notepad++...

For scratch operations, things like LinqPad or certain cloud services are useful.

In the interests of answering honestly, I don't think there is a true 'one-size-fits-all' answer to this question.
