Personally I've used a lot of IDEs and Editors. Never actually settling because there's always something not quite right, from a bloaty nightmare of Eclipse right through to simple text editor and shell script build.
When I tried VSC I first thought it was awkward, until I found the right extensions, and I haven't looked back, it's ideal for me. Cross platform, relatively lightweight, not especially associated with a particular language and its 3p extension options are seemingly endless.
And I'm not alone in finding this, which leads to the availability of loads of tutorials in how to sites and videos that are standardised in this one environment. Which makes my communication easier too.
I know there is an underlying bias in some people because it's associated with Microsoft but objectively, for me and a lot of other people it has been the best thing to happen to our development situation for years.
