    New C++ compiler -- nicked this from /.

    It is crossplatform for Windows, Linux and Solaris. Looks pretty nifty from what I can see :)

    How does this compare to Visual Studio .NET 2003 Architect?

    Assuming that this builds on their Delphi/C++ Builder IDE, it knocks VS.NET down and takes its lunch money, so far as building GUI apps goes. It's easier to build a nice GUI than Visual Basic, and you get to use a real programming language.

    I've used both the C++ Builder package and all of Visual Studio professionally. I don't hesitate to pay money for the Borland product. I refuse to pay money for the Microsoft product. Borland understands things about building applications and GUIs that Microsoft can't hope to imagine. Crazy stuff like:

    1. It should be easy to build.
    2. It should be easy to distribute.
    3. You don't need to know the buzzword of the week to understand what you're doing.

    Not that I'm biased or anything.
