I'm using Win 2000 and BC++ I want to get GNU C++, but I know nothing about Linux/Unix.
1. Is GNU C++ usable on Win 2000 platform?
2. If so, does it provide IDE?
3. Is it compiled and linked at command prompt?
4. How to get GNU C++ and how to use it?

1. Is GNU C++ usable on Win 2000 platform?
Yes. Using DJGPP (http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/) or that MinGW (http://www.mingw.org/)/Cygwin (http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/).

2. If so, does it provide IDE?
No, it doesn't. RHIDE is for DJGPP but it's a DOS program. XEmacs is quite good from Linux/Unix world.

3. Is it compiled and linked at command prompt?
The programs are compiled at command prompt(but most editors, like Emacs, handle this). The compiler itself is available in binaries.

4. How to get GNU C++ and how to use it?
http://gcc.gnu.org/install/binaries.html
For DJGPP: http://www.delorie.com/gnu/docs/gcc/gcc_toc.html

I was told that some compilers are usable on Win2000 but system environment must be changed to UNIX. Please tell me which one is recommended for a non-linux user. As I need to compile and link them at c:\> prompt not $ prompt.
