Old to new:

 

Sas Windows (DMS)

EG

SAS Studio

 

Best to worst (balance of technical vs functionality):

 

EG

SAS Studio

DMS

 

Preferred by seasoned SAS users:

 

DMS

EG

SAS Studio

 

Pick your platform. If I had my druthers, I would use EG. Best mix, powerful, sharp developers, etc. SAS Studio looks really good but early loaf in oven. Try it out and watch the progress. Long-term? Probably the winner but could be a bit out. DMS is like ISPF. Takes some getting used to so I wouldn't try unless you are a seasoned SAS pro. It is not better, just an old security blanket a lot of us like.

 

My opinion, YMMV.

My feeling, personal opinion only, is that we're going to see DM start to fall by the wayside, as it needs to be kept current for multiple platforms, which is a tremendoius expense.

 

EG and Studio have very similar concepts underlying them. I wouldn't be surprised if we see them start to merge, with EG being the fat client, more functionality version (simply because you can do more with a Windows fat client), and Studio becoming what you use when all you have is access to a browser. I think an investment in learning either of them will be well worth it.
