Just curiosity:

I recently see a lot of great efforts to make things more widely available (language server / debug adapter).

Often with reference to use in VSCode.

I wonder what the advantage or usecases are for using VSCode as an IDE?

- free and open source
- cross platform
- easy to setup
- support for a wide range of languages (syntax highlighting, the language servers) and environments (e.g. there's Arduino support which is leagues better than that of the Arduino IDE) - if the language server is implemented well then good code completion as well

So matter of taste?
Same as some people prefer eclipse?

I was wondering how it compares (if used with FPC) to Lazarus. (Not saying that Lazarus has a monopoly, just interested in knowing the diffs)
I.e., maybe it offers some features that Lazarus does not have?

I can see the advantage for people often using diff languages, to use one IDE for all of them.

It has a few advantages:
  - minimap
  - better scm integration
- quicker way to run external commands ("tasks"), editing the tools in lazarus is pretty cumbersome
