"a lot of extra features"..... I don't know what you may want that VC++ does
not have (and which are extended by almost all SDK you use); be more
explicit.

I recently try Dev-C++, which is an open source IDE. You can download it
on sourceforge.net and it come with last GCC for windows. Of course this
tool is better for simple program (i.e. no or simple gui). I think VC++
is certainly the best way to develop some complex application for
windows using C++.

I recently spent some time with Borland's C++Builder/X. I'm not quite
sure I like it as much as Visual Studio, but it's really not bad at all
(though it is curiously lacking in resource editing tools, but then
again so is Dev-C++) and the "personal edition" is only $10.
("Personal" meaning you have to be an individual, not a corporation, to
buy it, but once you have it you can use it to develop code for
commercial sale if you want.)
