    I'm sorry, but comparing a paid product with a free open source one is not a fare comparison.

    you're right, this comparison is pointless anyway
    the difference between rider and vs code is like difference between vs code and windows notepad

    I've been on the search too, and my findings are as follows:

    Rider:
    Pros. Best Unity integration
    Cons. Gotta pay, proprietary

    VSCode:
    Pros
    . FOSS, Good Unity integration, and customisation for days.
    Cons. Code suggestions always seem to favour snippets over classes,methods,fields etc... quite annoying. My solution, turning snippet suggestions off (I use them less often then i think)

    Consulo:
    Pros.
    FOSS, Unity Integration similar to Rider (not as good though). Dev is very responsive on Github
    Cons. a lot of potential but not quite there. Just lots of little issues like font size always resets.

    MonoDevelop.
    Pros. FOSS, Built for C#.
    Cons. opens a new project window every time you double click a script or console log. Performance issue - freezes randomly, never had a great experience with it.

    Conclusion
    I mainly develop on Windows, but my laptop is Linux so I've been trying to find an editor that works on both seamlessly without needing to jump hoops on each platform. So in this case I would choose VSCode, but if you don't mind spending money I would choose Rider. Pretty much that's what it comes down to.
