to assemble it i use nasm, to compile the c code i use gcc. that's pretty much the standard for this sort of thing. and just link with any linker you can get your hands on.

The IDE is not the real item under discussion here. It is the compiler, CL.EXE. (When you press F7, the IDE runs the necessary executables to compile your resources, code etc., and then the linker as necessary to build your .exe, .dll, .lib etc...).
>>> notepad is nice and simple and the perfect thing for os coding.
So you've typed in your code - how do you compile it?
