      "This program seemed to be the best solution to my problem. From what I have read myself and from what others have told me, it seems to be the "gold standard" in this category. If I continue working with this language in my current capacity, it seems like I will have to use this software at least occasionally, so I think it is best for me to use it as my "go to" choice."

      "Code::Blocks is easy to install and is an IDE that even beginners can use. It's light yet pretty powerful, and has all the features you'll need. Only downside is it's not 100% stable, for instance when you're saving/parsing code. But, it's open-source and free, and the developers work very hard to keep it going and continually improve and build upon it."

      "Sublime Text is a pretty lousy C# IDE. The editing is needlessly difficult which is ridiculous when you consider that the entire point is to make it easy. I also found the interface difficult to navigate. They did try to add a lot of features but the basic features are just too cumbersome to use. Generally speaking, this text editor is an epic fail."

      "Sublime Text 3 looks like it may be a good code source editor. I do not have much experience in this area however. I think it's good that you can download it to try it out before committing to buying it."
