It's Visual Studio Code, but even more FOSSy! It also features some other slight differences:

  • VSCodium has its own custom-designed branding (logos, etc.), thus avoiding the use of proprietary branding, and remaining truly Open (no offense to Microsoft--VS Code is a solid application, or else VSCodium wouldn't have been born.)
  • There is no telemetry data collected from users of VSCodium. Personally, I don't care about telemetry for the most part. As a fellow software engineer, I realize just how valuable it can be in stopping bugs, maintaining stability and being able to build and improve upon what you have already built. But many people don't like any telemetry whatsoever, however anonymous, and that's not a bad thing. It's a matter of taste. :)

As useful as VS Code, but without VS Code's privacy invading parts.

Visual Studio Code is Closed Core for .NET Developers. Why? Because non free .NET Debugger cannot be used with anything except Visual Studio Code. So it does not work with VSCodium. But wait! There is Samsung Debugger for .NET Core I can use. So VSCodium is only one fully and trully open source IDE for C# developers.
