Sunsetting Atom ⚛️ [Announcement]

Earlier today, we announced that we are archiving Atom and all projects under the Atom organization for an official sunset on December 15, 2022 . This is a tough goodbye. It’s worth reflecting that Atom has served as the foundation for the Electron framework, which paved the way for the creation of thousands of apps, including Microsoft Visual Studio Code, Slack, and our very own GitHub Desktop. However, reliability, security, and performance are core to GitHub, and in order to best serve the developer community, we are archiving Atom to prioritize technologies that enable the future of software development.

Over the next six months, we’ll be continuing to inform Atom users of the sunset, and come December 15, 2022, we will archive the atom/atom repository and all other repositories remaining in the Atom organization.

What a total disaster.
Being aquired by Microsoft this would likely be the result, what a shame.
