GCC does not support most of Microsoft's non-standard C & C++
extensions.  GCC also is not C++ ABI compatable with Visual C++. This
means that GCC can't be used to compile programs based on ATL or MFC,
which many Windows programers prefer to use over the base C APIs. I
suspect that GCC does not yet support compiling for Microsoft's .net
