    "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."

    "This program doesn't really work well with my system, although it is supposed to be "cross-platform". I really can't do anything that I wish to and it is extremely buggy. Maybe if the fix the issues I will give it another try but not now."

    "scriptcs is a free C# IDE editor, It has been invented for three years. It could be a good solution for this problem."

    "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."

    "PLAYCODE.io is an incredibly flexible resource for me. When teaching my classes, I can utilize sessions that I built at a prior time. The best aspect is the ability to log in from anywhere in the world to make my edits, so I don't have to worry about this part."
