Hi :)

I want to start creating windows applications. Can you tell me what editor is best to do this & if I can just start coding right away or do I need to download libraries etc to do it?

I am using Eclipse is this the best editor to use or are there better editors when 1st learning windows(...win32??) programming?

Code::Blocks with MinGW is my choice.

.NET is like asking someone to commit suicide. It's a bloated piece of crap.

Welcome to Win32 :) As long as your compiler/IDE supports Win32, and has all the includes (windows.h, etc.) It'll work. In my opinion the best compiler is Code::Blocks (http://www.codeblocks.org/)

if I can just start coding right away or do I need to download libraries etc

probably not :)

Hope I helped :)
