You can still get Bloodshed if you search for it at www.download.com. I''d say the Borland compiler is a better _Windows_ compiler, though.

the best free compiler for win32 in my opinion is borlands free v5.5 compiler. As stated elsewhere here it isn''t user friendly, but it isn''t supposed to be.
It is the saame compiler and libraries as used in the commercial products between Borland C++ 5.0 to Borland C++ Builder 5.0 (the current one).

For the IDE I only use the one with Builder, or command prompt, but I have heard for free ones VIDE is good. I would rather use "edit" though. Have been since it was first introduced.
