It's looking good so far but we'll see how it goes when I start to exercise it a bit more.

Would Recommend Code::Blocks IDE for C++ Development
I normally use a Linux host for my development work (Eclipse and Netbeans) but have today decided to look at Windows again. I was looking around for a no-nonsense IDE with version control, syntax highlighting, compiling and running of programs in the one intuitive interface. I finally found a good IDE that fits the bill: Code::Blocks (see home page at http://www.codeblocks.org). This IDE installs easily and without any issues from a single downloaded binary (albeit 100mb in size. Download the one at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/codeblocks/files/Binaries/13.12/Windows/codeblocks-13.12mingw-setup-TDM-GCC-481.exe) and can build and run C++ application code straight out of the box. I was very impressed. I didn't have to setup cygwin or MinGW it set this up for me (i.e MinGW was installed alongside the IDE and GCC).
