It's not lightweight, takes up a lot of ram

Visual Studio 2012 Professional is a great IDE, but it depends on the language you use for coding. There are some great IDEs out there for HTML/CSS that are far better suited to those languages than Visual Studio. Because Microsoft offers the Community version at no cost, it's a great way to evaluate before committing to a serious spend. I use Visual Studio to develop custom software solutions for my company. While I'm currently the only developer in the organization using Visual Studio, it is critical for everything I do in developing an application suite for my company. It's not a lightweight IDE. It takes up a considerable amount of system resources (space, in particular). That's not generally an issue anymore with modern computers, but it does run heavier than some IDEs out there.

Number of features

Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2012 Retail Box software does have a number of features that are advantageous for the user. One is that it has a built-in terminal that can accommodate the current framework that I use for my work so I won't have to open up the terminal application anymore, another would be that it can search a specific word that you have types throughout all the files that you are currently using. Another feature would be support for frameworks, I use different frameworks and languages to code and not a lot of software may have a simple time adapting to the style of coding a specific framework has, VS Code has and you can download plugins so that it can adapt to the framework that you are using.

Janet Tyler

The thing I love about the Visual Studio 2012 professional is its flexibility. You can work with many programming languages within the framework. Also, being relatively new to programming, I appreciate the capacity of Microsoft's IntelliSense to anticipate what I'm trying to do. There are so many helpful suggestions to keep me on the right track. While the enterprise edition can be somewhat expensive, the community edition (free) has most of the features you need to develop quality, commercial-grade applications. Microsoft has done a lot in terms of the tool quality to lure developers in and get them hooked on a good IDE before you ever have to spend any money.
