Microsoft isn’t so popular for being a friendly company for the open-source community. However, Microsoft came up with a genius tool for the programmers that’s completely open-source, cross-platform, well-maintained and offers numerous powerful features!

Yes, Visual Studio Code, in my opinion, is one of the finest code editors you can get right now! It successfully combines the power of a simple code editor and with all the necessary parts for the core edit-build-debug cycle.

Today, let’s enjoy this awesome tool on our Linux distro!

Installing Visual Studio Code

There are several ways of getting VS Code on your system. Run the following command according to your Linux distro.
