I decided to work with #atom lately, and I made a fresh install on a VM to test some packages outside my real dev machine.
Just occurred to me that "by #GitHub" now means by #microsoft... So MS now really controls the IDE market from any possible angle.

    From any possible angle? Since when do they own netbeans?

    Ummmm JetBrains? Netbeans?

    Does it really matter who makes it if you like using it?

    Sublime Text? Also, I wouldn't call Atom an IDE.

    I can see Hashtags, that don't work in devRant.

    But yeah, Microsoft does have a finger up everything in some way, it has now come to seem.

    @shaji In my case: yes. Something called ethics/morality exists.

    @linuxxx that is some narrowminded thinking right there. As long as things are open source, everything is fine. And Microsoft got so much better than 10 years ago

    @muma Why would it be narrow minded thinking not to want to use anything which is owned or developed or backed by a company which is integrated within very nasty stuff?

    That seems more like common sense to me.

    @rstular also since when do they own cat and echo?

    Since when do they own vi and tmux? Since when do they own brackets.io? Since when do they own notepad++?
    Jetbrains, netbeans, eclipse (not that you want that but still)

    @linuxxx Microsoft is not Windows only you know. The dev Stuff is actually pretty good. And again: as long as Stuff is open source i don't care who is behind it as long as its good.

    @muma I did not mean windows, why did you assume that?

    @linuxxx what else then?

    @gitreflog more like tmux and vi as a faux ide. Have your server instance in one session, your text editing in another , and your server instance listening writes. And you can then write, watch the logs as your server restarts, and swap back and write again.

    @muma The fact that they're integrated within the biggest mass surveillance network ever created maybe?
