Improved Java support poured into Microsoft's Visual Studio Code – will it be enough to tempt developers?

Zippy´s Sausage Factory

I don't understand what Microsoft want Visual Studio Code to actually be. Is it a competitor to Eclipse, NetBeans and so on, and therefore a threat to the Visual Studio income stream? Is it simply a research project that someone mistakenly greenlit into release? Or what?

I mean, maybe they're losing money on Visual Studio (although at the price of the subscriptions, I very much doubt it). Otherwise I'm just at a loss to understand why, from Microsoft's point of view, it exists.
