I'm wondering how to use Visual C++ (shortly always called "WC") under Linux. 
Concerning Borderland C++ you're right about *compile* time, but *runtime* 
there is horrible. Probably it is slowest (and most bloated) compiler over 
the world. ;-) And example is Delphi, Borderland C++ Builder and all 
Kylix'es. Last one (Kylix) produses modules for Apache, which is so ugly, so 
bloated and so slow. OTOH, I know nothing about Kylix 3... Maybe it is better 
a little for today...

If something has not yet gone wrong then it would ultimately have been
beneficial for it to go wrong.
