Hi Shamil

I did see the blog but paid no attention to the comments. 

He is of course right, that if you already have Visual Studio installed, Code doesn't add much - but not everyone has either VS or Sublime Text installed.
However, speaking for myself, it would bring to me the first useful application for an iPad - should I ever get one.

 Hi Gustav --

Yes, it looks interesting, but have you seen this comment by Drazen Dotlic 30 Apr 2015 12:59 AM:

"We already have VS Community. We already have atom with community supported - apparently excellent - TypeScript experience. We already have cross platform Sublime with Microsoft TypeScript plugin. Did we _really_ need yet another editor? Apart from Atom (of which Code is a 'fork') you're spreading your own resources thin, at least for TypeScript. This is unlike "New Microsoft" which stopped inventing hot water 5 years ago or so and starting properly embracing Open Source and using other people's stuff."

It's just a part of his comment - another part is more positive - read it in full by following the link above.
Thank you.
