    Hi,

    I'm installing git for version control of my unity projects.
    Through out the installation process it gives a list of text editors to use.
    I have VS2017 community and a regular notepad (Win10pro) installed on my machine.
    I have no idea which one..?

    Visual Studio Code is not the same as Visual Studio, as confusing as it may be. I'm not exactly sure when git uses this setting. Diff maybe?

    I don't think it matters to most people since you can open any file from the file manager in the editor of your choosing (I believe it is probably only used for editing files such as .gitignore). I am comfortable with Vim but I chose Notepad++ instead (which I have installed). It is separate from using Visual Studio for committing, pushing, pulling, etc.
