Back when the GNU project was starting, among the first things they rewrote as Free Software were:
- text editor / IDE (Emacs)
- assembler, linker, and compiler
- make

IOW, they made tools that they needed to further develop Free Software without relying on proprietary tools.

They wanted their project to be self-hosting.

Nowadays, we have more free software than ever, but we develop it using github and Discord...

@Wolf480pl you could have mention .. Even if free sotware developpers has lots of alternatives...

@Wolf480pl @moulinux it's open source but if you build it yourself you can't call it vscode lol

@Wolf480pl @kurisu the code is , but the binary is not.. really few people i guess are compiling the software or using vscodium.. so my toot..

@moulinux @kurisu
Oh, so have more examples, thanks!

I didn't want to use it in my original post, because it was kinda a borderline case, and I wasn't sure about the details.

@moulinux @Wolf480pl @kurisu is Atom affected by trademark stuff? It's basically VSCode before VSCode.
