Should a beginner student use JetBrains products?

Hey, I'm just starting my UG course in Computer Science. We have C as our first language and than Python.

Now as JetBrains products (CLion, PyCham etc.) are free for students, I want to ask should we use these or text editors like VSCode or atom.

If you recommend to use text editors first then after how long should we start using JetBrains products (as they are industry standard, I believe learning them would be helpful)

P.S. - I tried CLion for the first time (used atom before it) and I was very confused and overwhelmed my the interface itself.

Thanks.
