I have used Visual Studio Code on Ubuntu and the usage was primarily for .NET Core development. Trust me, if you want to do .NET Core programming, you must use Visual Studio Code. Install the C# extension and you will feel as if you were using Visual Studio on Windows system.

Other than this, Visual Studio is not yet ready for software development. Do not use (or think of using it) if you are a desktop service programmer, such as desktop software, database management etc. Visual Studio Code targets web development as of now. There are a few editor extensions that are available for C++ and Python programmers too, but I haven't used them as of now. Also, I would still wait for software development until Microsoft pushes an update for the compiler and debugger integrations for C#.

Long story short: Do use it! It's free. Besides, .NET Core programming is a lot interesting if using Visual Studio Code. Git integration provides a clean interface for management of projects... Just use it. Smile | :)
