See the link in my comment to Mycroft above - basically its a lightweight text editor with syntax highlighting and other language support, with plugins for many languages.

I would assume a "non-Windows language" is a language that is predominantly used on other platforms: C/C++, Python, and many more. Where VB, by contrast, is almost exclusively used on the Windows platform.
(VSCode actually supports both).
