Re: How does it compare to vi and bash?

A "steep" learning curve is one in which the user gains proficiently quickly. It's not how I would describe Venomous Studio. (I've used the damned thing for decades and I'm still finding new misfeatures and idiotic design failures.)

Of course, vi and bash have pretty shallow learning curves too. vi (well, vim) may be my editor of choice, but I don't think it's easy to learn. What makes it better than VS is far less bloat and far fewer black boxes that misbehave in incomprehensible ways when you try to do anything that Microsoft didn't anticipate and decide to cater to.
