I've been using VS2010 professionally since it came out in 2010...
Personally I've been using VS2013 for a while now and I love it.

Now at my old job they didn't see the need for updating (I guess that's expensive and VS2010 IS a good product as well). Now I left them and they were planning to update to 2013 since they could use the free Community Edition as they're a small company.
Somehow they did think it was important to update SQL Server (Management Studio) as we had 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2014...

Now at my new company they are using... 2010... Dead | X|
Way to big for the free Community Edition, but not wanting to spend on a newer VS. They're now waiting for 2015. So I guess I'll be using 2010 for another year...

Gimme that sweet 2013+ goodness!
Personally I'll certainly update to 2015 if Microsoft releases another sweet free Community Edition!

The best IDE of them all must be Notepad though! Big Grin | :-D
