Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 And WTL Released

What is the cheapest price for a Microsoft C++ compiler?

The answer to the question is free. Not only is the answer free, but at the time this announcement was posted, so is a copy of the Microsoft C/C++ optimizing compiler and linker. Additionally, Microsoft has thrown in C and C++ Runtime Libraries including the STL, a copy of the Microsoft .NET Framework CLR, and a smattering of sample code. This is all part of one of the newest toolkits, Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003. You can download this from the MSDN site at:

The new toolkit is not the only new thing that you may be interested in from Microsoft. They also released the Windows Template Library (WTL). This light-weight template library for doing windows in C++ has been released as Shared Source through Microsoft's Shared Source program. You can find the source at:
