I do most of my development on a remote machine. The machine isn't that remote, it's a mini-pc running Ubuntu that is standing right here on my desk. It has no peripherals, so I have to do all my development remotely through my Windows 10 laptop.
Remote development with Vscode is amazing. It just works. Once you are set up, there's no difference with working locally. To have that seamless experience you do have to set up keybased authentication for SSH. If you don't you will be constantly reminded of working remotely, because you have to type in the password of the remote machine.
