One thing I've gotten used to and find missing in VSCode (and Atom) is auto-saving of untitled/unsaved buffers to temporary storage.

When I have an idea or want to use a new editor tab as scratch space, it's really important to me that whatever I put there isn't lost if I exit the editor. When I close the tab, sure, ask me if I want to save it somewhere. But when I close the editor itself, I want it to reopen and restore everything exactly as I left it.

The last thing I want to deal with is coming up with a path and filename when the editor can easily create a temporary file and map some unique id to it for later use until I tell it explicitly to save or discard it.
