First of all, you shouldn't be using Turbo C++. As replied in your other post, Turbo C++ is highly outdated and is not up to standard. Consider using another IDE. Again, I myself recommend Visual C++ Express 2010.

Some are open source (like Eclipse C++), while others are proprietary (like Visual C++).

Visual C++ has a very vast collection of libraries already integrated into the IDE (with development network for documentation Microsoft Development Network). This makes it easy to learn as you go. I've been programming for years but I still find MSDN to be a life saver. The benefit of using a proprietary IDE like Visual C++ is that it's very stable with many nice features.

The major benefit to using an open source IDE like eclipse is t he fact that it's cross-platform, allowing you to develop with ease on operating systems besides Windows.

:thumbsup:

umm.

ok, when you hear the words "open source" think Unix, Linux etc. their source code is free to the general public.

when you hear the word "proprietary" think Windows. you have to buy it and their source code is jealously guarded and vigorously defended.

ive never heard of the term "pirated copy of linux" but the same cannot be said for windows. and thats about as simple as i can imagine explaining it. umm... good luck.
