Why are all these #programmer's & #coding #YouTube'rs using #VSCode, that's insane? It's just slinging your #data directly to #Microsoft and why should I give them my work? They already have #GitHub & #NPM, those never-satiated monsters. 🍪

BTW: I use #Vim & #Git with Tig on @codeberg on my #Manjaro #Linux :awesome:

@r3pek @kubikpixel @codeberg This seems interesting... If I got it right, the only difference between VSCode and VSCodium is that no telemetry is sent to Microsoft.
But, dumb question: isn't telemetry anonymous? I mean, as far as it collects just 'data' but not 'my data' it's fine, isn't it? Especially because thanks to telemetry developers behind vscode can improve it (even Mozilla uses telemetry in Firefox...)
