Hello all,

Python (if I am not right, I am sure there exist other examples
of this case) as of now seems to still depend on Visual C being
compiled on Windows and still causing problems being compiled
with MinGW.

Is that really true? Aren't there any free C compilers native to Windows? Hasn't GCC been targeted at Windows native?

GCC isn't a freely licensed compiler. The GCC compiler is licensed
under the highly restrictive GPL license.

For a freely licensed C compiler try the pcc compiler at
http://pcc.ludd.ltu.se/ .

You can also try clang at http://clang.llvm.org/ .

With a year, GCC will be replaced in the superior BSD flavored
operating systems.

Sincerely,
Rjack
