    Linux

    Okay, just pretend that I want to use Linux. What is the best Linux C/C++ compiler and how recent is it?
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    the GCC compiler is what everyone seems to use. I have it for windows (DJGPP) and I think it's pretty good.

    How could GCC work on MS Windows if the POSIX api is so weak?
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    It's completely for DOS/Console. It's been ported to windows. It's a good compiler.
