That is cool! Is updating as new versions get released easy?

So the answer is NO, you can't update VS Code as versions are released. You can update Code-OSS as versions are released, but it is behind the current version.

Additionally, the list of extensions is not complete. In particular, the remote ssh extension which I use ALL the time is not available due to licensing issues. I tried installing it manually, which I could easily do, but it doesn't work.

APART FROM THAT. It's fucking awesome. Just not something I will be able use for my day to day development tasks currently.
