    where can i find a compiler

    hello there,
    i know a little bit of c now and i wanted to practice my knowledge in doing programs that actually have some utility (unlike the ones i learn in college) so, since i was only tought how to compile in linux (gcc) and i would like to make windows applications (preferenciably graphical ones, which means with buttons and stuff) and i dont know which are better i need your sugestions (it doesnt have to be freeware).

    also, is it worth it to start learning c++?

    Dev C++ is an IDE that used MinGW for its compiler, it has also stopped development. Code::Blocks is a good choice for IDE if you are looking for something fully featured.

    There I also Visual Studio Express which is available for free I believe.
