Thank you so much for your great feedback.
A sort of welcome page might be a really good approach for the account
page, what you see when you click on your email account, where as you
said we can have way more flexibility.
I don't think a welcome page should be a replacement for the account
setup dialog, as a dialog forces us to be careful with space and
content, and helps the user to focus on one thing at the time through a
guided and compact workflow.
Nevertheless, your suggestion is much appreciated.
P.S. I'm an avid VSCode user, so thank you so much for contributing on
that great piece of software :D
