    What compiler are you using at the moment?
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    I'm using one that's provided by my school, but you need to be logged onto their network to use it and it's mildy troublesome at times due to the lag it bring. I'm trying pelles C right now, but I'm wondering what other people's insights are as to convenience in simple programming thus far.

    What OS are you using?

    GCC is the standard Open Source C/C++ Compiler.

    Depends on what kind of programming you want to do and what OS you're running. My personal preference is gcc on Linux, but if you want to program on Windows and make fancy-shmancy GUI stuff, you could always try Visual C++ 2010 Express (free for non-commercial use). Don't ask me what to use for a Mac.

    I use PellesC as well... I've tried most of the other C compilers. Pelles is about as good as it gets especially with the bonus of custom libraries and tweaked up window headers tossed in.
