    Visual Studio Code has nothing similar to projects. It simply opens folders and files. If you have to deal with many projects, some of which have staging and live environment, things became messy very fast

    I worked with NetBeans for a couple of years and always loved it, but for professional users the yearly fee is well spent: Nicer interface, better Code Intelligence, more options to fine tune what happens on saving a file (eg. saving or uploading to various locations). You get a couple of feature update each year plus bugfixes, whereas NetBeans is sometimes very slow to update things (support for new version of a language) or to fix known bugs.
