I’m sitting in the Eclipse vs. Visual Studio talk and the guy mentioned that Visual Studio has a free version. Really? So I went to look and I found this:

Express Quick Facts
Download Size:35-70 MB per Express Edition
Price:Visual Studio Express Editions—Free for 1 year

Well they are slowly getting it.

I still would love to see better support for Windows development in Eclipse, especially C++ (obviously) and even C#, for the student/hobbyist. Hopefully someone in the community with the time and resources can step up and help us get there.
