Which is a shame. It guts the market for good tools.

It's pretty sad that VS Code doesn't give you much that VS6 couldn't do back in the day (except slower and less stable).

Didn't know that VS6 did JavaScript or TypeScript. I only remember C/C++/VB. Certainly don't remember Node.js support.

Also, I think your memory is playing tricks on you. I've experienced more the my fair share of crashes in VS6.

Not to mention that VS6 had one IDE per language instead of having it all integrated into one, so when you used both VB and C++ you'd have to put up with a drastically different UI for each language.
