Discussion on: Why and how you should migrate from Visual Studio Code to VSCodium

The main reason for doing that switch is ethical.

But there could be some other reasons. We have monitored the traffic of VSCode and it's literally sending traffic over the internet every minutes, back and forth, lots of data. That alone leads to some CPU usage, internet traffic and battery usage.

So if you want to have a more efficient setup, go green mind, and you don't want that Microsoft monitors all your keystrokes and work, go for VSCodium.

We are many that did the jump. Thanks to @0xdonut for the great work which make the jump even easier :)
