I would very much disagree in regards to the programming, at least... I write plain C code all day, and I'd kill myself if I had to do it in Windows... Mainly because I really couldn't unless I wanted to live in the ancient past of old-school ANSI C, since last I heard MS still doesn't support C99 and has no plans to support C11... They seem totally focused on C++ only... Plus, I can't live without vim! (Yes, I'm sure there's a port and of gcc, too... But, you were talking about MS's own native offerings being superior here...)

C programmer here as well. Honestly, it's not THAT bad on Windows. It's just the matter of installing the right tools (cygwin/mingw/gvim/whathaveyou).
And Visual C++ isn't too bad either - most of C99 features you can already use under C++ mode and I can live with that (unless you need to cross compile).
