I used to try my hand at C, never got past small very basic progs; occasionally did some minor scripting, nothing to write home about though. Looking at playing with awk again, for my own pleasure(?).

I see. I'm asking this because when you do more and more programming, you actually dig pretty far into one editor, to improve your workflow. I was just curious to know why you can switch without much caring about the editor
Vi/Vim has been a savior for me. I sometimes force myself to use other text editors, but they just "don't do it for me". Only GUI text editor I can somewhat use comfortably is Atom.io besides that It's Vi/Vim all the way.

If I were a programmer, my choice would be vi/vim because it uses the home keys for most things, no having to move to arrow keys or ctrl/alt keys. Lots of programmers also recommend it, so it has got to be good.

My new favorite editor is Microsoft's Visual Studio Code, that thing has support for Linux.

whats your opinion on it so far?
The fact that editor exists is proof of changing times. This semi-new Microsoft CEO is really cool imo.

I love Microsoft's new CEO, he is looking at technology as a whole and seeing where Microsoft can help improve a new or changing product. Not like Apple, where they only want to worry about themselves and let the other Tech. companies do things on there own. I also think some of Windows 10 capabilities, like installing software from the command line and the 4 way snapping came from him and his use with unix/linux.

But the editor is great, it has not crashed on me yet, minimal RAM usage, on my system it only uses about 80mb of RAM. It's very keyboard friendly like vi is.

But basically it is a tweaked version of Github's Atom text editor, the only new feature that was added was support for Microsoft's javascript engine Monaco for better web development.

So what I said about about the low RAM usage and the keyboard friendliness can also be had with Atom.
