He is speaking about C++ code and compares it to MSVC 7.1. I'm not a big
MS fan and I certainly don't want to advertise them. MSVC is the
standard compiler for most Windows users. The Windows build should be as
convenient as possible. If our main goal would be speed I'd probably
settle down with the Intel Compiler. ;)
