Extensive .Net framework Extensive libraries C# support Ease of programming Power of .Net Responsiveness Reactive extensions, Lamda functions etc Ease of debugging Now Microsoft is supporting open source projects for .Net - .NET core

User

The interface is very clear and easy to navigate and it integrates a lot of frameworks and everyday tools that make your life as a programmer easier.

Nothing I really dislike, the 4.5 version of the framework just feels a bit cumbersome in some places now with the improvements in 4.6, 4.7 and Core

User

I've had some issues loading programs but only occasionally. Overall not bad.
