    Phoronix: Visual Studio Code Has Surprisingly Huge Linux Use & Other Developer Metrics

    You may recall that back in July Intel's Clear Linux team was looking for feedback on Linux developer workflows and other developer preferences. This survey wasn't limited to Clear Linux users and the results are now published which provide for some interesting data points...

    It would be absurd if it didn't XD

    No it isn't.

    Emscripten?
    TCC?
    SGDK? (GCC based Megadrive cross compiler with a few additional steps)
    Watcom?
    Borland?
    Qt 1.x MOC?

    I have used each of these in my time and I can guarantee that no IDE can support them all out of the box (or with existing plugins).
    nvi, vim and makefiles work with all of them

    And that is basically why VSCode is often more useful than Visual Studio (IDE). VSCode fits the "simple text editor" niche rather than always jumping around these different IDEs.
    (though again, there are IMO better simple text editors than VSCode, VSCode is branded and marketed (it is on pretty much every stack overflow advert) so that is a big reason why developers use it).

    I don't quite agree with this. I find it a bit too time consuming moving tooling around. For example, if you suddenly get a contract to develop an Android app would you then have to use Android Studio? How would you integrate all these different IDE build systems with your i.e Jenkins build server.

    Thats why a lighter editor is generally a good solution if you develop in multiple disciplines or languages. For me that is nvi on *nix or notepad++ on win32. Over the years I have developed simple plugins / patches for these to i.e navigate large projects effectively.

    what makes you think he loves unity or c# more?
    he also said "The three of us got together and decided that we hated C++, it’s too complex. Going back…if we’d thought of it, we’d have done an object-oriented version of C. But we were not evangelists of object orientation", so how is relevant opinion on c++ by someone who doesn't know that c++ is not object-oriented language?
    don't forget, we are talking about guy, who designed "c++ killer", which only attracts python devs. "featureles because it makes it better", but adding generics because users don't give a fuck what idiotic world view designer had. btw, that idiotic world view can be shortened to "only features which i like are important, your are not"

    sticks and stones also make job done, somehow people prefer more advanced tools

    good ide can do better. but even among bad ides it should be fashionable to support cmake projects, cmake can have many programs in the project

    you don't have to open all project files, open only ones you need as with any text editor

    I can't believe you fell for that Microsoft trick
    i have no problems distinguishing vs and vscode

    sure, but you can't use incorrect one if it is not available on your platform

    vs doesn't work on linux, so it can't be used by linux developers
