Notepad++, to Atom, to Visual Studio Code... any recommendations or feedback?

Wow. I mean... Wow!

Didn't think I'd be as impressed as I am about Visual Studio Code.

I've really loved Atom up to this point, but holy crap; Live Server, Terminal, etc. - it all works right out of the box or as soon as a package is installed.

This is something that never "went right" with Atom. Packages broke or didn't work for some reason, across multiple OSes. In this respect Visual Studio code is a beauty.

I jump between Windows 10, macOS/OS X, and Linux all day... so, before I truly accept it as my primary editor, pretty much dumping Atom:

Is there anything I should be aware of that I may not already know about VSCode?
