Are the exercises in this book heavily dependent on the Atom editor?
I have been stuck on page 5 for over an hour. Atom crashes, fails, corrupts itself and every other problem you could imagine in an install. This is apparently a very common issue and there are many threads on trhe web referring to issues with Atom launches and installs. It is extremely irritating to be bottlenecked by something so trivial as the install of a text editor.
