    I've used both, and i find codeblocks far better because it's so much easier to use!

    I find Visual Studio much easier to use. It's subjective. Best to try both.

    Of course, i'm not saying that C::B is better than VS technically or anything. I just say what i prefer through what i've experienced.

    I'll recommend any newbie to go for Microsoft Visual Studio 2006.

    If you go for VS, I recommend you go for 2010 for C++0x.
    Visual Studio 6.0 is an old piece of crap, non-compliant studio. Burn it.

    Well, for a beginner, I would recommend Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate (since Express might be not enough for him), of course with license purchased. C++0x is mandatory for him. Don't forget about boost before messing anything!

    And now seriously:
    I consider C::B much simpler, especially at first look. When I had to choose between C::B or MSVC (never used any of them), I decided to go with C::B.
    All the MSVC options, solutions, and generally speaking - its windows - have successfully scared me away.
    I never put signature, but I decided to make an exception.

    Awesome, I did all that detective work just to have other people go derp derp microsoft is better. Have both. Compile on both. If both compilers can't find an error or other complaint, then you have really good C++ code in your projects.

    Mr.777 - why not the newer versions?
    Code:
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; ++i) { }
    cout << i; // should this work or not? Does it work in VC++6 or not?
    Known problems in using the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler, version 6.0:
