For a long time ago there was talk about releasing the extension sdk in a version for other than Visual Studio, for instance gcc(or minggw in win32?).
Is there any progress in that department? I am cheap and don't want to buy Visual Studio and the free version has (at least had when I checked it last) a dubious license (as I understod it, I wasn't allowed to use it to make anything that anyone else used?)
