    What's wrong with Dev-C++?

    You might try out some trial versions of some compilers to see how you like them.

    Invest your money in a few blank CDs, burn a Linux distribution onto them, and install it onto a fresh partition.

    Then use gcc and emacs.

    Or you can spend $800 on the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 Compile Button.

    Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 is ANYTHING but user friendly LOL. I have it and only use it for win32API, I personally hate it. But I have to use it for the game programming I do, for some reasons...

    Dev-c++ is my favorite compiler, I love it and its FREE!

    Plenty to choose from, why not post a review of your findings?
    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.

    Dev-C++ is an IDE, it uses the MingW port of GCC as the compiler.

    MS VC++ .NET is aimed at power users, and large complicated projects. Making trivial small stuff all the time in .NET becomes that way stupid, bloated and annoingly hardworking, Unless you use always the same project, and simply switch source files. But MS VC .net is a excellent tool, although I won't advise it to anyone with little experience. You'd spend more time trying to work with the IDE than doing real programming.

    I find VC++ way too bloated for my needs... I find that Dev-C++ is definately the best IDE out there... besides, of course, Vim + GCC

    Here's a couple links to IDE's and you can download them with the MinGW compiler:
