    I use both compilers a lot.  I run FreeBSD and Mac OS X and use GCC
    there exclusively.  I build each new release of GCC from source code
    and I have made changes to GCC.  Having said that, sure the GCC tools
    are free, but they do not generate as good of code as Visual C++ does!
    In fact I just completed a comparison of VC6 and GCC 3.3.2 on Windows
    XP and VC6 still generates better code, and VC6 is from 1998!
    If he has bought VC6, then he should enjoy it.
    For those that want to use GCC on Windows, the simplest way to get it
    is via the Cygnus tools.  Check out http://www.cygwin.com/ for more on
    free Unix tools for Windows users.
    I actually write more navigation software using Awk and Perl these days.
