adobe Dreamweaver vs. Sublime text

I have adobe Dreamweaver on my computer, this will be what I will use when I start building websites for myself and clients. I would rather use this program to learn instead of sublime text. Is this possible or is it going to give me problems while i am learning to code using Treehouse?

Sublime is both less expensive and provides better code-sense (auto-complete) than Dreamweaver, in my opinion.

However, Dreamweaver does have a better-than-the-essentials code editor (and knows which tag to close automatically, YAY!), code snippets, and a very handy built in FTP Manager to keep files locally and online in sync. So those are some strengths.

However, do not rely on Dreamweaver's built-in previews for any kind of accurate sense of CSS positioning, media queries, and other advanced concepts.
