I use dev-c++ from It has a very 
good dsw importer and makes a most simple MinGW makefile that can be 
used outside of dev-c++. Also on wine.
But who wants to go outside, It is loaded with goodies. Code completion 
debugging class browser the works. It has only 2 flaws. That it doesn't 
use the Scintilla editor, and that it doesn't drink it's own soup, see, 
even though it is GPLed it is written in Delphi.
