re: Is VScode Truly Open Source? VIEW POST


I'm perfectly fine with Microsoft license and telemetry, after all VScode binaries are free. Are we really that picky? Can I build it from source? Yes, but why?

VSCode provides an extension store, are you going to reproduce a open source store server because of this technicality too?

Does VSCode vs VSCodium have any functionality differences?

I think imho people want something to be a problem because the binaries come from Microsoft, I'm pretty sure other companies or even small teams do the same thing to better their products. By the way you have the option to opt out telemetry in VSCode.
