"It isn't open source so I don't want to use it". What?

Alright Julian Assange, go and make your own code editor.

And by the way, comparing VSCode to Eclipse is flat-out wrong. Eclipse is an IDE, VSCode is a souped up text editor.

If you want to talk about a Microsoft IDE, you need to look at Visual Studio.

To be honest I don't even know why VSCode exists. No need to hate on it for 'open source' reasons though. A criticism like that doesn't make a jot of sense.
