free VC++
« on: 04 Nov 2005, 11:03 »

I just found out about Code::Blocks, an open-source IDE.  If you look at their FAQ, you'll see that one of the compilers you can use with this IDE is *drumroll* Visual C++!  Apparently Microsoft has been giving away their C++ compiler as a free download.  Between that and this IDE, you've essentially got their $100 plus software for free, legally.

ADDITION: Hookay, I just noticed this at Microsoft's site.  Am I missing something here, or are they totally just giving Visual Studio away for free?  Note that the Toolkit is a 30MB download, while this is only 3.
