I know you're speaking in jest, but seriously Visual Studio -- for all 
its faults -- is an extremely hard act to follow.  After using its GUI 
debugging facilities, for just one example, it is literally painful to 
go back to gdb on Unix.  And, no, the GUI debuggers on Unix don't even 
begin to compare; most are just thin wrappers around gdb anyway.
