Well that's comparing Apples to Oranges isn't it? Yes originally Eclipse
was designed as an IDE for many languages, but it has grown to be so
much more - even a platform to base new applications on (similar to VCL,
LCL etc).

Granted I haven't played much with VSCode, but considering it is built
on the same foundations as Atom, Sublime Text... ie CSS/HTML engine,
they are quite resource intensive.

But then I guess I'm comparing them as pure text editors in the lines of
EditPad Pro, Vim, gEdit etc that uses a fraction of the memory (one
example of resource usage) to load the same set of files. eg: The last
time I tried Atom (2 months ago) it used 380MB to load a set of 10 large
Java files. jEdit used 180MB and EditPad Pro used 18MB. Vim was
something like 8MB - lol.
