Borland''s compiler is better in optimzing code in means of size and somtimes performance. It''s also more ANSI compatible than Micosofts VC6 compiler. The only problem is that the dx 8.1 libs are not compatible with borlands compiler. You have to find and download them yourself as they are not part of the dx sdk. Anyway, for DX developement I prefer MS VC, because of the better support. For everything else (GUI and Database stuff) I use Borland C++ Builder.
