Hi PharmCat,

» Hint: Using Juno IDE (Atom based) makes Julia much more appeasable.

See the subject line. Part of the procedure is “Download, install and open Atom.” I always try to keep the OS and virtual machines on one disk, software on another, and data on a third.
Bad luck with Atom. Ended up in c:\Users\{user}\AppData\Local\atom and glued an icon/link on my desktop. Now I have another 850 MiB (7,988 files in 3,982 folders) on my system disk. 😡
Already Julia gave me the creeps. Though installed on my second disk (375 MiB, 1,143 files in 304 folders), I have additionally 221 MiB (24,769 files in 8,951 folders) in c:\Users\{user}\.julia …

Dif-tor heh smusma 🖖
