The reason for that will be that it is Cross Platform my friend. Visual Studio Code is supported on all the available platforms as at present. 

And also it has a compatibility to to edit, run and debug any version of the code that you have chosen. Ex: F#, C#, VB,  Python etc. 

Hope this was useful and i have made it simple and clear. 


We use both depending on the situation. VS Code is more modern and certainly better for Git and Merge tools than Studio but it doesn't have all the abilities of Studio that I've found, global storage properties etc. We've found VS Code doesn't handle physical files as well as Studio at least for InterSystems so its unfriendly when using CSPs that are version controlled.
