Is it just me, or after using VS Code for a while, every other IDE does feel ugly???

    No not just you, I love the VS code hylighting theme and as much as I hate how unstable and terrible visual studio itself is, having stabiltiy and the same great design in a lightweight editor is a win win

    I always felt VS Code is a bloated version of Sublime text, and somehow using VS Code always brought me the feeling that i am typing in a duplicate product.

    It does. I really believe that vs code is the most visually appealing editor available in every single platform i use.

    Idk if I'm just using it wrong, but isnt VS Code more of a Code Editor? Yes, it does offer some tools like refactoring etc, but in comparison to a full-fledged IDE like IntelliJ or NetBeans it doesnt stand a chance. So how can people exclusively use VSCode?

    @wholl0p As is usual with Electron-Apps.

    Does anybody know a good Code Editor that runs on Linux natively?
    (Before y'all get your panties in a bunch: I know and love Vim)

    @gathurian I use Sublime Text since it is written in C++ and as customizable as VS Code..

    @wholl0p Bear with me, I'm feelong really stupid now, but does ST actually run on Linux? I thought it was Windows-only 😂

    Do you use the free version with the popup every so often or did you buy it?

    @gathurian It runs on Mac, Linux and Windows! ^^
    I bought a license on eBay for ~7€

    @m0nk That's what I'm saying. VS Code / Atom / ST are nice to read code with Syntax Highlighting, but to actually get work done, I need more.

    And I have sold my soul to JetBrains long ago. Luckily I'm a student and get all Ultimate Versions for free.

    Altho the Community Edition works well for most things, there are a few Features in the Ultimate Edition that I wouldnt want to miss. Im working on a JavaEE Backend with attached Database. The DB-Tool in IntelliJ is heaven-sent

    The point being "looks ugly", there are tons of themes for almost every IDE. If you have the time, sort through them and choose the one you like. But, as they say, looks aren't everything.
    The reason I switched from Eclipse to IntelliJ is because of the default dark theme.
    The reason why I didn't permanently switch to VS Code is because it doesn't have other niceties of IntelliJ.
