Would you like to use free GNU software utilities, languages, and compilers, but in a Windows environment instead of Unix or Linux?

If so you should visit and download DJGPP and the other 32 bit DOS ported GNU freeware utilities. You can use the GCC compiler, emacs, and many other tools to do true portable to windows and unix C++ programming on your PC, without special emulators, disk partitions, or virtual machines. You never thought you could use emacs or GCC in a windows environment? Yes, you can. This site contains good instructions in Docs and FAQs, which allows you to get set up in no time at all. By getting these GNU utilities, you could also further enhance them, perhaps for more modern windows environments. Let us not forget that the modern Macintosh operating system is a Linux kernel.
