Is this python for data science as well, or just sticking with general programming?

Hi. Both! Though focus for next release++ is data science. Think Python+R in Visual Studio and "Visual Studio Code" (the newly released cross-plat lightweight IDE), w features that are relevant to data scientists and technical computing types.

By the way, can you say if we will see better scripting support (python or r) for excel? :p

Also can we have support for Rpy2 or some kind of python -r ffi please????

Sounds super cool! I like the new Microsoft :)
