At OLF I learned about a more advanced (and experimental) integration between Neovim and VS Code. If you are using the vscodevim VS Code extension, you can configure VS Code to use Neovim to run your command-mode commands. In theory, this should offer better performance than running commands through the extension’s commmand interpreter.
At OLF I also learned that AlmaLinux has a WSL environment available in the Windows Store. If you use WSL on Windows 10 or 11, you can install it from the Windows Store and use it just like the Ubuntu versions.
