Bloodshed Dev-C++ Comments

Dev C++ is an outdated piece of crap, please use alternatives!

Negative Comment by DutchmanDavid
about Bloodshed Dev-C++ and wxDev-C++, Orwell Dev-C++ Mar 2012

I've used DevCpp for ~2 years now and the more I use it, the more I hate it. Bugs keep me from smoothly creating my programs which infuriate me! And since this project hasn't been updated since 2005, I've given up on it. Please use (updated) alternatives instead of this P.O.S.

If you REALLY want to keep using this, at least pick either Orwell Devcpp, or wxDevcpp.

wxDev-C++ is an extension of Dev-C++ by Colin Laplace et. al. This program helps you to create dialogs and frames for wxWidgets visually using a form designer. With all the wonderful features of Dev-C++, wxDev-C++ is still being actively developed. The main aim of this project is to provide the wxWidgets community with a free, open-source, commercial-grade IDE/RAD tool for development with wxWidgets.
