It's just too clunky for my taste.
It's also hilarious that Atom gets shat on for data collection when no one cares that VS does it too. Microsoft can do no wrong, only OSS projects have standards to live up to.

emacs and (g)vim have a gui mode.
I'm curious about your answer to this: would you argue that MS should combine Word and VS Code into one text editor?
The Internet Archive seems to have a version listed on the 'Abandonware' listings.
FWIW, I can't figure out how to integrate vim into my workflow, since the text editing controls are different than they are in the rest of my OS.
Have you? Or did you read the placeholder document for a version of vim that isn't anywhere near ready for general release? Because if you know where a branch or a build of vim 8 is, I'd appreciate a pointer.
Sorry if I sounded like I was endorsing it. Did you not read my comment?
Can't say much about it, haven't upgraded yet, but the write up on it looks promising.
Normally I'd be the first jumping on Microsoft products and criticize them but this is a strange statement. Most of what you can find in VSCode runs on nodejs so if you want a specific features in a CLI you don't need VSCode, just install whatever nodejs lib you need and use it from the CLI.
