However you've missed my point. You're moaning about the state of free development tools for Windows and I'm saying that Windows / Microsoft isn't there to provide you with something for nothing. I'm saying that if you want a free environment, then you really need to go FOSS. However if you want to use proprietary software -such as Windows and VS- then you have to accept that it's going to cost you.
It's like people who moan about the cost of development on iOS - if you don't like it, then develop for Android instead; it's free to develop on, there's more handsets in circulation and it's free to develop on.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a FOSS fanboy. I just can't stand people who choose to use proprietary tools then moan about having to pay for them / how crippled the free tools are.
Quote:You have that backwards, that's cross compiling for Linux, not Windows. Plus Cygwin is total garbage.
