Dont, stick with Dev. yes, it has it's issues, but what compiler doesnt?
I am sticking with Dev and MSVC++2003 untill the new standards are relased in 2008/9. Then, some of the C/C++ language will change ( but very little ). So, some of the compilers we use now will report small errors. But that is a long way off yet.
To answer your other question, most use Dev or Microsoft IDE compiler systems. Few use Borland, although Borland Bulilder Studio is quite good. It is all a matter of taste
