    Yeah, the latest one allows you to choose different compilers.
    The IDE is separate from the compiler
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Do you have something specific in mind?

    The gcc based compiler (mingw) is perfectly adequate for most purposes - especially if you're just learning stuff.
