    Question new to Win programming

    I am new to Win programming. I am looking for a low cost/free C compiler that will run under Win ME and allow me to start learning how to create Windows programs. Any suggestions?

    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    Dev-C++ works, but the IDE itself isn't exactly "industrial grade" if you know what I mean. Ditto with Code::Blocks.
    operating systems: mac os 10.6, debian 5.0, windows 7
    editor: back to emacs because it's more awesomer!!
    version control: git

    What do you mean, "industrial grade"? It works fine, if not excellent, for me.

    If you're starting out, dev-cpp should be fine.

    I haven't seen anything more "industrial grade", so it's enough for me.
    Besides, you are programming, not the IDE.

    Yes, but when you have the whole GUI done by the visual editor, it saves you all the time it takes to create every control and place them accordingly, with code.
