Far from perfect

Free Code Camp: “VS Code’s success story is interesting because it’s far from perfect: its UI has that Microsoft-y clunkiness that seems to infect all their products, it’s a big resource hog, and it can be kinda slow to initialize.”

If you go read the article and don’t see the irony in the above statement I’ll point it out for you. Visual Studio Code uses Electron which allows developers to write desktop-like applications in JavaScript. Is the author saying Electron is slow, JavaScript is slow, a combination of the two, or that maybe Microsoft developers made it a fat — slow — pig?
