Implementation of cheap Windows C++ development environment

Actually it is not that cheap. It will cost you about $139.99 for Windows XP Pro OEM from TigerDirect Canada. That's a ripe off, instead of other good-reliable operating system such as Linux/*BSD sells for free. Unfortunately you need Windows in order to develop Windows C++ application.

Eventhough I use MSVC compiler in my office. I can not afford that for my home business development, not to mention that I dont get used to text editing mode in MSVC. It sucks. The following are my implementation to cut cost of Windows development.
