Given the cost and issues with Adobe I'm planning to switch video editing to DaVinci Resolve. Wanted to know if any others are using it and if the workflow (after the steep learning curve) is better

In Premiere, I usually take one long video or multiple clips. Turn them into 10-15 sec compositions. Edit, stabilize and color them and then use media encoder to create the output files for upload. Can all this be done

Yep, I'm using it despite having all apps for free from Adobe.
There is a learning curve, since it's a different approach (nodes, instead of layers). But Youtube is full of very nice tutorials.
I even recommend paying for the studio version (one-time payment only) to gain access to additional features, like their very powerful noise reduction module (actually, it can compensate the price for additional plug-ins like Neat Video)

I'm trying to see some tutorials and I guess creating multiple timelines and then queuing them should be similar to me creating multiple compositions and then queuing them for render.

Noise reduction, stability and hopefully ability to add some text are my main reasons to switch. Also hoping that it runs better on my potato of a laptop (with intel graphics) vs premiere

Been using Davinci for about 4 months now - love it. 

Never used Adobe for video only photoshop.  Steep learning curve at the beginning but honestly wasn't as bad as I thought - basics are pretty easy and there are tons of Youtube videos.

Formerly a hostage of Adobe Premiere and their insane monthly fees. Switched over to Da Vinci and would never go back.

Gave it a shot today, it seems to be unforgiving with my HP laptop with integrated intel XE graphics. It almost melted.

But its pretty fun to use vs Adobe that seems to throw up strange problems at times
