wood pi caseI was really excited when Visual Studio Code was announced for being cross platform since I use Raspbian on my Pi, but in the process of preparing my Raspberry Pi 2 to install the software, I found out that Code does not support ARM processors.

Currently Visual Studio Code is available for 64-bit devices, which since the Raspberry Pi 2 uses arm along with many of the other micro computers on the market, they are not compatible.  I will keep watching to see if an ARM version is released to update you all, but for now Visual Studio Code will only work with 64-bit versions of Windows, Linux, and OS X.

This will not prevent me from using or providing tutorials on programming, with Visual Studio Code, but was disappointing.
