A compiler alone without debugger is not necessary enough reason to use msvc.

Ah, and I hope this rule from eula.txt is not bad for us:

"3.1.If you are authorized and choose to redistribute Sample Code or 
Redistributable Code (collectively, the "Redistributables") as described in 
Section 2, you agree: (ii)˙that the Redistributables only operate in 
conjunction with Microsoft Windows platforms;"
