FYI, I did try Visual Studio Code, and it works nicely. But it doesn't have all the features of PTVS.
I use Python Tools for VS in Windows, and would love to use them in VS Mac.
I absolutely despise the "Backup and collaborate" popup. It doesn't go away on its own, and when you try to close it, if you don't hit the "X" dead on, it sets up the project for Git. This is one of the most god-awfully designed new features of VS2015, and I wish I could disable it permanently.
