Well I am using VC 6.0 because it was given to me to learn c++, but according to
according to Microsoft they quit supporting the 80 bit long double when they started making 32 bit compilers, so getting a newer one from Microsoft will not do me any good.

And it's fine for learning C++. It follows enough of the standard that you won't have to worry about it. Compilers aren't like stereo systems where you have to have the latest and greatest every year. VC6 is still in extensive use.
It still bugs me when people keep suggesting someone upgrade just because a new version comes out. That's not always recommended. For example, have you guys upgraded to Vista? XP is so old... :twisted:
