For last 7 years, our company's open stack teams had been using different IDEs. Right from Eclipse to Notepad++, (Truly so many of them). The environment used to sound very alien.
Now in couple of years, one by one, all them have moved to Visual Studio Code. Is this not awesome?
The whole of them - including Php, Node, Python. All using this now. & they seem to like it much.
It's definitely helping to relate/connect better. It doesn't give you the "alien" feeling now.
(But VS Code, as such was feeling alien to me , just got used to it well )
I'm using it on linux for C, and it's not so good:
1. trouble differentiating C from C++ (even when it's a .c file)
2. intelisense - to many matches and (unlike in studio) it shows no affinity to prefer the last used match or/and locals
3. seems to ignore/misunderstand some include files (ex. everything defined in signal.h shows up as undefined)
4. often wrong choices in conditional compilation blocks so even more not-undefined's
5. no autoindentation of code blocks - just follows the last line
plus points: pretty decent code coloring, and it's not vi[m]... are we in insert mode? doh!
No, as it means that the other IDE's will slowly vanish, limiting our options.
If it's Eclipse, I would definitely want it to vanish.
Look at it positively, It's a competition. The one that does it best, will get the user base.
Now to beat VS Code, something else will come up. And we'd be the beneficiaries, we'll have great new options option to pick from
