    The author is trying to pull the wool over his readers' eyes. This is NOT the main landing page for either VSCode or VisualStudio. Those are https://code.visualstudio.com/ and https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/, respectively. Copilot doesn't make any sort of appearance on either page.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
