It's an IDE like Microsoft Visual Studio. Unlike MSCS it's available for about every platform out there: Windows, Mac, Linix, BEOS, even Playstation and N64(I think).

It's probably the prefered development environment for just about everything but Windows.

Codewarrior, at least for the macintosh, is wonderful.
IMO, it beats the snot out of any other ide ive seen, although ive heard that the windows version is crappy(that should be expected ) and if i were you, id stick to msvc because of its illedged dx support, although, if you decide to start programming mac, linux, psx, n64 get it, its great

oh yeah, it does java and pascal too...isnt that neat?

Yeah, keep VC++.

Even people who hate Microsoft \grudgingly admit that VC++ is probably the best dev environment around.

<FLAME ON>
Those Linux guys are even 'ripping it off' with KDevelop if that says anything.

The DirectX SDK also works best with MSVC.

P.S. for any linux guys w/o a sense of humor, I'm kidding.

Codewarrier's a lot cheaper too. The newest full version is about $400. For the MS suite, you have to pay over $1200.

Plus, I program on a Mac and if I had the full version, I could recompile my programs to Windows. (I currently use their $80 version. It only compiles to a 68040 or earlier chip)
