@aral I’m currently using Atom as my text editor, but I’ve been following your posts about VSCode and I want to try it! I just want to know your thoughts about using a Microsoft app as your main editor (maybe it’s just the anti-Microsoft in me overthinking it)

@imavca @aral atom is githubs app, now owned by Microsoft, so probably not too different :P

@imavca My thoughts are we live under surveillance capitalism and if we can safely use the PR efforts of surveillance capitalists (like open source tools) against their interests, we should. Turn off telemetry. Use it. Build something that makes Microsoft irrelevant in some way 😎
