For me, what I liked was that I could import most of my unix
stuff verbatim to a pc, type "wmake" and more often than not end up
with an executable. I don't use the IDE at all. I also liked the fact
that I could easily create DLL's to be called by MATLAB (I do most of my
 "serious" work in a combined MATLAB/FORTRAN/C environment, under HPUX,
Solaris and winblows).
