    Thank you.
    Microsoft Visual Studio, MSVS, has taken almost the entire C++ market for Windows C++ development, at least for professional coders.

    You can setup a UNIX-like environment using command line tools for debugging and compiling with IDEs like Geany or a bloated Java-based Eclipse. There must be other similar IDEs, but each will need lots of manual setup - they are not all-in-one like MSVS or Turbo C++ was.

    Microsoft used to release a free command line version of their Windows C++ compiler. I don't recall the details, but there was some hub-bub about a change in license/distribution a few months ago before the Win8 release.

    I miss TurboC++ - it was a simple, efficient tool for building small projects. I probably still have a few licenses here along with Borland C++ and C++-builder licenses.

    Since this is a Linux-centric forum, I'd encourage you to learn to program for Linux systems using Geany, ddd/gdb, g++ compiler, and Makefiles. This knowledge will transfer to almost every other platform, though it is not an all-in-one solution.

    Geany is a cross-platform editor like Notepad++, if you haven't converted to vim or emacs yet. Any editor can be used for Linux development. ddd is a good C++ debugger GUI into gdb. gmake is a project build scripting language and tool that can make building the different parts of a program easy. The Makefile descriptive language is a little different - it depends on tabs, so be cautious with any editor that changes spaces and tabs automatically.

    Out of curiosity, I asked for an alternative to TurboC++ - some interesting results there.
