In addition, you can of course code in any .Net language, in C++, and in Python with a free plug-in. And as has been the case for Visual Studio for a long time, you can work with databases directly from the IDE. Visual Studio is especially strong when working with SQL Server databases. You can get away with using Visual Studio instead of SQL Server Management Studio for the majority of operations you'd want to do as a developer.
The performance of Visual Studio 2013 is usually pretty good if you give it enough memory and CPU power -- and it tends to require significant resources. As I mentioned in my full review, startup performance has improved quite a bit in Visual Studio 2013. I no longer have time to brew tea between bringing it up and starting to work.
ALM integration in Visual Studio 2013 is very good, but unlike many of the IDEs in this review, it requires you to actually use the IDE when you check out the project. Many of the other tools will automatically recognize and use an existing Git repository. If there's a way to make Visual Studio 2013 do that, I haven't found it.
