It was time. Atom has become so damn slow and kludgy for everything I'm doing these days that I've given up and am given VS Code another whirl.
That said, I definitely find it harder to get moving with VS Code. Some of it is overcoming muscle memory, but some of it is a clunkiness that I thought they’d have sorted out by now. The extension installation UI is abysmal for a start, and opening a new window results in a soup of stuff on the screen that doesn’t feel conducive to getting started.
