Discussion on: Localhost isn't local anymore

What if I told you that everything was shared? Files, terminals, debugging sessions, language services, workspace tasks, and most extensions state (e.g. GitLens, Test Runner) are all now automatically shared, which alleviates the "host" from having to worry about what is and isn't shared.

Additionally, when someone shares for the first time, we open a "Getting started" page in-tool that explains exactly what is shared. I'd love to hear if you have thoughts on what we could do to make this more clear, since this is definitely something we want to convey accurately to users.
