Well as far as I understand the Solus inclusion for packages (besides opensource, active development, etc.) is to have one software per job. For webbrowsing it is firefox (in the standard edition), so I can understand why it is not included in the base packages. Now from a webdeveloper perspective, I would love to see this version of firefox included not necessarily as a tool for browsing the web, but as a webdevelopment tool. Of course this also heavily depends on the targetgroup that solus is targeting. Is it a developer focused distribution or an enduser focused distribution, who would never have a use for this version of firefox.

Thank you for your reply.
@tristan957 : I always thought a linux distro is there to be used by its endusers, which I am one of, well partially. And to my understanding you are not upgrading to a newer version of vscode until microsoft fixes it so it builds with npm5, which is a noble undertaking, but it leaves the enduser out of sight. I do unerstand your point and I also very much appreciate it. People like you are who drive change forward and that is good. But I have a feeling while you are doing this you are also loosing sight of the people trying to use solus, and that is what made many good distros (Slackware and many others) vanish from sight. I would really hate to see this happen to solus.
