Supports wide range of languages. Useful extra extensions. Fast build times. Nice debugging options (JIT, Editable on run, etc.). Much customizable options

I wish it didn't install so much extra unnecessary crap. This app definitely suffers from a serious bloat issue. Other than that, it's great to work with.

Maybe a powerful IDE, but it's too bloated without an option to opt out of the bloat, and obviously it doesn't support GCC and thus you're stuck with MSVC, which means C89 and only a small subset of the features of C++11.

It is a good one, but still has microsoft damned policies, you pay for it but it has not php mysql support, so you have to pay for a third party extension. it has a buddy debugger that really bugs you, yeah thats right, even when you uninstall it it still keeps bugging you. I don't know what it wants from your life but there it is until you change your windows, thats what i ended up with it, i search too many blogs and forums but there was no solutions to solve my buggy thingy.
