Is Visual Studio worth it, considering all the complexity and time it takes to set up and learn? Is it also better than Atom? For example, would you get it?
I use Atom. It's more clearly for me then VS. and there are a lot of plugins that you can download and set up into you local machine, and it is supported by the community of github coders all over the world. I like Atom more. It's only my opinion.
I fell in love with VS windows forms C#
I use visual studio community because it is free, and because Unity engine uses it for development. What do you want to do with it? It has support for a lot of languages.
I enjoyed VS while I had it. But I like the customization and efficiency of vim, including their keymapping. Atoms customization is great as well.
Visual Studio is awful. It took 4 hours to download and is always crashing. I have a modern Windows 10 computer so I don't know why it won't work
