I hope this is the right place to post it.

Enjoy ;-)

YEa, thanks a lot, really interesting. But I can’t agree in the MSVS stuff. MFC, ok, that’s clear. But the IDE of MS is not so bad, as they say. It ahs many features that are really good and helpfull.

Hmm this article is really interesting but as far as IDE is concerned if we exclude cross platform thing then VS is the best IDE i can think of on the planet as of now, Qt creator is still behind though not too far.
