Just a periodic reminder: Microsoft's VSCode is not open source. No more than Google's Chrome is. Both are based on open source projects (Chromium and the unimaginatively-named VSCodium are open source) but include proprietary stuff like fonts, integrations, and telemetry. If a software app isn't entirely FOSS, it's entirely proprietary. If you're using VSCode or Chrome, you're not using open source.


@lightweight YUP! Source available != open source

I do like VSCode, but it's not open source.

@robdaemon I'm not convinced all the code's even available... how would anyone know? I won't use either, because I intensely dislike Microsoft in particular (and all the proprietary mega tech corps in general) :)
