So I recently came across , a cleaner version of built directly from source and minus the telemetry shit.

Tried it out and might be placebo but Codium seems snappier than Code.

Here’s the link in case you wanna switch too:


@arghyadeep It's a little dissapointing that it doesn't have the setting sync or live share capability. Why do those need to rely on proprietary services? =/

@bhart Setting sync is understandable but for live share it might be Microsoft strategy to hold on to the consumers.

Anyways, I don't care for either of those so I''m good.
