The idea is to develop free software using free tools, and I think VC++6.0
isn't. And when I say free I mean software licensed under the GPL or
another license like that...

Besides, I have read (in Colin Peter's web page) that the mingw can't use
VC++ DLLs, but I have not tested this myself. IS it true?
