Good IDE to use?

#19
VSCode is pretty good, it's a lot more lightweight than editors like Atom (which I've personally had horrible experience with because of memory leaks). Looks pretty, decent amount of features, easily extendable with plugins and themes you can find on the marketplace. It's nice seeing M$ making something open-source and cross-platform.

Filezilla and Notepad++ are all I use. Course I'm only good at simple PHP scripts. Big Grin

hehe, I like filezilla, it's how I transfer the backups I make of my modded OG xbox on/off it's 1TB internal drive. note: I make legitimate backups because I want to keep the game discs in playable condition when possible... also reduces loading times during play.

You know that Windows 10 literally has the capability to run Linux now right? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Su..._for_Linux

yeah but... why would I run linux inside windows like that?

windows is insecure, it's unstable, it's not as easily customizable, I can't mod drivers to fit whatever devices I need them to on the fly, and it eats up way more resources too, and that's just a few in a long list.

besides as far as microsoft and open source go I can say one thing... Steve Balmer.

"Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches,"

"The way the license is written, if you use any open-source software, you have to make the rest of your software open source,"

"Our goal is to try to educate people on what it means to protect intellectual property and pay for it properly"

Chicago Sun-Times - June 1, 2001.

it's hard to believe microsoft would do anything open source.

That's pretty telling, and definitely a Microsoft stance.

that was from 18 years ago, if microsoft is actually making open source software and or allowing linux to work fully and natively with windows... I'm really really nervous because given their history something is obviously either changing inside microsoft or they're actually a threat to open source and nobody's noticed.

Exactly, that was from 18 years ago. Something has changed inside Microsoft. More of their Azure installations run Linux than Windows. They're much more receptive to open source software now. They OWN Github. Windows is basically becoming Winux.

Yep, bought it a few years back. Some of their application patches are now provided through Github rather than the Microsoft website.

Why do that when they can just buy Red Hat or Canonical. That's probably what they'll try to do.
