Xfce is really good, it's light and fast and it gets the work done. It's modular approach is great, you can swap applications you don't like for your own and the Desktop Environment doesn't get in the way

Git integration, integrated terminal, faster than Atom, the community has written useful plugins though I try to use as minimum as I can. I have written most of what I like about Visual Studio Code in the section where I explained why I switched from Atom.
