Discussion on: If you've recently switched code editors— How's it going so far?

I recently switched to spacemacs from VS Code and I'm happy with it. I made the switch for two reasons:

  1. I started using a Chromebook and it doesn't have the capacity to run VS Code
  2. I've been doing a lot of repetitive stuff and a macro system has made it easier to do

I like spacemacs because it uses few enough resources to run on my new computer, it has macros, I can stick with my previous knowledge of Vim's keybindings, and I don't really have to learn how to configure every little detail of emacs until something really starts to bother me.
