I use Visual Studio Code because it's fast, reliable and apart from that updated very frequently and very extendable and I like it's Git integration.

Another good reason is the vast popularity which allows for faster community support online (Stack Overflow or else) if you run into App specific issues.

Atom Support might be put on ice in the future (just guessing though, since MS bought GitHub).

Let's be honest here guys...the internet, technology, software, and most likely the lights wouldn't be on without Stack Overflow.

We are avid consumers of Q&A on Stack Overflow and other communities on the Stack Exchange network, and definitely wish to extend a heavy thanks to all the help is has provided over several lifetimes of various developers' and engineers' careers. We all try to answer questions, upvote, and comment when we have some knowledge to share, and aren't afraid to ask a question ourselves from time to time (and neither should you!). Stack Overflow
