    Dev C++

    Hi!

    I recently got a new computer and have been out of the programming scence for awhile. I was thinking of reaquiring Dev C++, but I had heard that the program is under new management. So, my question is, is Dev C++ still 100% adware and spyware free? If not, what release, if any, is malware free?


    Thanks!

    To be honest you can download DevC++ free from a number of free compiler sites. I use it and get no hassle from adware

    Please explain how you could introduce adware/spyware to a popular compiler and not cause a mass exodus.

    Thumbs up

    And, it's open source (GPL) so you don't have to worry. If somebody messes it up, old versions will still be available, and someone else will fix it!

    I guess you are right... I had to get my computer's hard-drive wiped clean because of some adware in a "free" Java IDE, so I was just being cautious.

    Thanks guys!
