I'm not a MS fan at all. Thus I tried various VS opponents such Code::blocks, DevCpp, ... If coding is quite confortable (although IntelliSense-like class browsing isn't as powerful), I must agree in full : VS debugging is a breeze ! GDB loose context too easily (step-by-step crash after little time or few steps, variable watch is messy, ...). So, for the first time being, I must say : Hats off MS !
