Just a quick question about the two. I'm using Code::Blocks as my IDE and have both the MinGW and VSC++EE 2005 compilers. Now, MinGW I finally got working, but it seems like it's gonna be a lot of extra work once I try using an API (having to move the API specific files to a certain location). Anyway, my real question is, can I use the VSC++EE 2005 compiler and still make programs that are portable to a platform such as Linux? Also, which is better among the two (if there's any difference)? Thanks for taking the time to at least read this. ~TDOT>

There's something called WINE that has Windows exectable's availible. It will port your windows code to work on linux. Also you can build the library & executables from source(the better choice).
