It looks promising but without some of VSCode's MS plugins vs codium is just another normal IDE though I would like to reserve my observation till I try it out.
What do you mean? You can use any extension with it:)
The only extension I haven't been able to run in VSCodium is Live Share. Other than that all the MS extensions still work fine.
That and also the discord presence one
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
