@seancorfield I wonder if you might find this new VS Code feature useful considering how you manage your setup. https://code.visualstudio.com/updates/v1_75#_profiles

I have the same "setup" for both work and OSS -- and my settings etc are sync'd across both my work and OSS machines -- so I didn't think profiles would be useful to me when I was reading the January release notes. The only difference is that I don't have GitHub Copilot installed to WSL2 on my work machine, only on my OSS machine, and even that is purely out of curiosity rather than usage (I'll probably uninstall it completely at some point).

I think I'd find profiles more confusing than helpful, TBH -- I really do like having a single, unified experience across all the projects I work on, across both machines... Perhaps if I worked in other languages between work and OSS, this might be appealing? I'm curious what people here would use profiles for...?

The Profiles are a bit weird and confusing to me too. I wonder why they ended up with the current implementation. After activating profiles I need to pay close attention to which settings json I am editing. Otherwise, I do have good use for it. I can easily switch settings between when I am solo coding or pairing via screen share or demoing. Though I could handle that with Joyride pretty well too, so I might go back to that. 😃
