Coverity Scan vs Visual Studio: What are the differences?

Developers describe Coverity Scan as "Find and fix defects in your Java, C/C++ or C# open source project for free". Coverity's implementation of static analysis can follow all the possible paths of execution through source code (including interprocedurally) and find defects and vulnerabilities caused by the conjunction of statements that are not errors independent of each other. On the other hand, Visual Studio is detailed as "State-of-the-art tools and services that you can use to create great apps for devices, the cloud, and everything in between". Visual Studio is a suite of component-based software development tools and other technologies for building powerful, high-performance applications.

Coverity Scan belongs to "Code Review" category of the tech stack, while Visual Studio can be primarily classified under "Integrated Development Environment".

        I use Visual Studio because it provides me best default configuration for development. Less choice helps me concentrate on the product. In a sense it is iPhone of software development for me. When my laptop broke, I just download latest version of VS and start coding without any configuration. For sure it has best editor in terms of perceived responsiveness. Could not say the same for IntelliJ IDEA unfortunately.

        We are an ASP.NET shop, so it is fitting that we use Visual Studio. The biggest advantage that VS gives us is the first-class debugger, and the ReSharper refactoring tools. We do use Sublime, Brackets, Vim, Emacs, and other editors in conjunction with VS since VS does can take a long time to load.

        An IDE which I use for at least ten years now. Roslyn is getting better and better, but VS Code seems better now. A bit obsolete concept, but the extra tools (like git integration, azure browsing, preset projects and solutions) makes it still very useful.

        Best open source, good replacement for Visual Studio. I'm using it as my development environment in C# and Dynamics 365 Business Central (extension development).
