    "Probably the most flexible IDE out there for now."

    by Max52946 on Nov 16, 2018 2:23 PM

    Summary:
    Visual Studio 2017 requires a different focus for installation than most previous versions of this tool. There is no ISO you can download to install, for example, with every installation having to be kicked off with a web downloader that then bootstraps the rest of the installation either from the Internet or from a local administrative shared network location. The upside of this is that because the tool is so flexible and has so many different parts, the previous installations and updates were huge and took a very long time to run, during which time VS was not really usable. The new system allows each developer to only install the stuff they are actually going to use and this makes the installation process quicker, the update process less intrusive and the whole system run a bit faster and easier.

    "Best IDE for Windows development"

    by BorisM on Nov 14, 2018 2:49 PM

    Summary:
    While initially Visual Studio had lagged in usability behind the Delphi IDE, recent versions are as usable as anything you could find for general-purpose Windows development using either .Net languages or Visual C++. There are also options for doing cross-platform development for Android and iOS or for writing Python code, but since I mostly work in .Net I am more familiar with that. Out of the box IDE (especially in higher SKUs) provides sufficient assistance for writing code, but the best part of VS is a vibrant ecosystem of extensions available for Visual Studio.

    "An IDE that holds a place in Software Development tools that can create a better tommorrow."

    by Nate on Jun 6, 2018 10:46 PM

    Summary:
    Understanding the range of different languages and APIs available brings things such as universal programs running on all platforms from PCs (Windows and Mac OS) to Smartphones (Android, Windows, and IPhone). With other development made possible for web, and cloud. The only flaw I can see is with documentation on what classes are available with the .NET Framework versions such as the timing class.

    "Visual Studio is the most powerful IDE"

    by Mentoliptus on Aug 17, 2016 12:16 AM

    Summary:
    I have used other IDEs (Eclispe, IntelliJ IDEA, MonoDevelop, FlashDevelop...) but none of them is as powerful and full of features as Visual Studio. If the only feature it had was to drag and drop the current line pointer during debug it would be light years ahead of it's counterparts...but it has may more useful features that other IDEs pale in comparison...and there is a FREE version! The only drawback is that it works only on Windows, but there is a version with less features that works from the web and on other OSes.

    Microsoft is trying hard to have VS work for many other non-MS technologies. Have you nothing to say about those?Max
