    Definitely one of the better ones for the price of $0

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Still dev-c++
    Your other choices are really on the old side now.

    I used Dev-C++ for a good while but recently switched to VS .NET 2003. It has a lot of nice features, but is very expensive (except if you go to college/university, where you can probably get a nice discount). Dev is still a great choice though

    I use GCC mainly on OS X and Linux. On the rare occasions that I use (and program on) a Windows machine, I generally use GCC (aka the compiler that comes with Dev-C++).

    Dev C++ is definitly a good package, at least for beginners. (being one myself I'm not sure if you'd want anything more from an IDE )
    Typing stuff in Code::Blocks 8.02, compiling stuff with MinGW 3.4.5.

    Dev-C++ is one of the best IDEs available, and certainly the best free one. I also use Visual Studio.NET 2003, which has the benefit of a visual editor. If I'm writing a program that requires a GUI, that visual editor (and some of the other similar features) are great to have, but most of the time, I use Dev-C++ just because it's a simpler coding environment.

    FYI, the default compiler is MinGW, which is the Windows port of GCC, which is an extremely popular compiler - often used as the bench mark for other compilers.

    They have Visual C++ 2003 on the microsoft website.. if you want you can download it and use it.. they also have Visual C++ 2005 Beta 1(i believe). also very nice compiler.

    But other than that i would go with Dev-Cpp
