I think that many people uses vim and emacs because of their capability of load in the terminals. I actually still use emacs but only for writing the commit descriptions.
It is interesting, now that we talk about that... might it be possible to make an user interface for vscode in plain text mode?
Would that make vim and emacs useless? ;-)
It would not make them useless, as there will still be people who prefer Vim and Emacs
And even then, by the time you have your terminal version of VS Code, you might as well allow use the real version with all the keyboard shortcuts.
No. I am not able to do it. I have nor the time nor the skills, but I would use it.
