Just wondering... I've used Dev and VS 2008, but I've also heard Code::Blocks is really good as well. Anyone have opinions/suggestions to add in?

What's the best is hard to say, it's all about personal preferance. I prefer NetBeans over Dev-C++, never tried Code::Blocks. Visual Studio is not free, so it's not really an option for me. I also doubt it is much better than NetBeans. :) Some people prefer notepad, or something more like notepad++, with few features, while other people couldn't live without "intellisense"... I hear ViM is ok, I have never tried that either. I think one should find one IDE and compiler (suite) and really learn how to use their features. I think most IDEs will do the job in the end, if you know how to use them.

I've used Dev-C++ and Code::Blocks. To my mind, Code::Blocks is great when it works, and bloody annoying when it screws up the includes for wxWidgets. wxDev-C++ (which is maintained) seems to be a little simpler. I've about reached the same state as Methodz, though. Using a text editor and understanding your compiler directives seems to give me the best results.

Yeah I actually just re-downloaded VS 2008 (after wiping my drive) and I think I like it better than other free programs. It's really easy to use too lol.

I have only tried VS with VB6, and that was through work (thus the not-free version). It was all great and stuff, but it's expensive.. How's the free edition? What are the limitations?

Lol, torrents doesn't make it less expensive :) I prefer free stuff over cracked proprietaries mostly.

Uh, yeah, it is. Actually. But you won't make me download it. I'll stick to NetBeans for another year or 10..
