How is this different from vs-code?

What are the benefits that I get from switching to Theia from VS-Code?
This doesn’t seem to be clear from the website.

[original thread by Avinash D’Silva]

Main benefits / differences are:

  • designed to work in browser & desktop app

  • more flexible core architecture (you can change / white label without forking)

  • vendor neutral (Theia is developed by a diverse community and managed by an independent open-source foundation (Eclipse Foundation))

Thank you.
