I wonder, is it actually JS or they are using TypeScript? VSCode is written in TypeScript but it was mentioned there that it's JS, did somebody mixed things up?

Yeah, we can verify the validity of the statement since most of these project are open source. It's all Typescript, not JavaScript. according to the OP:

>> Those are one in the same thing (compiled) :-). But us TypeScript in majority at Microsoft in almost all the projects I've seen or been apart of.

Using the same logic, could we say that all windows is written in assembly ? When looking at JavaScript output of a Typescript program, it does really look like JavaScript is treated as assembly.

One almost never edits the JavaScript code when using Typescript, especially if the mapped ts files are available when debugging in F12.
