Visual C++ Giveaway

Apparently, on Monday, MS will make VC7.1 (VC 2003) compiler and bits a free download (not time crippled, not usage crippled, not the IDE / GUI) -- the next version will be the same.

Looks like the pressure to give away tools in order to get platform adoption is reaching MS again (C# compiler and .NET are already free downloads).

Where will it all end?
