I am using VS 2003 to edit the code and compile/debug it on Windows, and gcc to compile on other platforms.

VS 2003 makes small executables, and it's a very stable IDE.

VS2005 is the best but it's very expensive I can't buy it. And also the .Net platform complicates the programmers work. It's dedicated for professionnal not for learning programmers...

Well i think this is highly subjective - you should try them and use whichever you prefer

Well, VS2005 Express is free for NON commercial products.

I'm now using the Code::Blocks I like it even it isn't as powerfull as Visual Studio but is sufficient for my actual programming needs.

You don't have to use .NET with anything if you don't want, and as for expensive...
