If you want to do Windows development - particularly Windows 8 and RT development - then Visual Studio is really the only game in town. This is simultaneously a blessing and a curse.

On the other hand, if you don't like it, you're pretty much stuck with it. Nevertheless, countless successful applications, small and large, were born, raised, and graduated from the Visual Studio IDE. And countless more are still to come.
