Tldr; because your company bought a license

Would you use an inferior product just because the company bought a license?
The article doesn't prove it's worth the price, but it would suggest it's worth at least something.

I was just being a little snarky about the post's title. ;) I definitely appreciate people trying things and writing about them!

I would try it...which is what I think kicked off the trying it, in the authors case.

Yeah, I agree with the trying.
Just arguing that a sensible person wouldn't keep using it just based on that.

I'm copying my own comment from above. It's exactly about worth part.


I used to spend 4-8 hours a month to configure or keep updated my VS Code / Atom. That's roughly $100 MONTHLY.

The WebStorm costs my employer $50 YEARLY. I don't waste that time any more.

WebStorm is CHEAPER than VS Code.

In my first web project, the company bought a license. In my current project, I have no license and use the EAP version.
