I use the Win32 port which comes as an add-on package with DevCpp.

However I've recently switched my pen drive compiler from DevCpp to
I'm finding the Code::Blocks built in debugger (which also uses mingw gdb)
to be excellent and have started using that in place of Insight, as it
doesn't seem have any of the problems Insight has.

In fact, I'm so impressed with Code::Blocks as a whole, I think it makes
DevCpp obsolete and needs a backend writing for rbuild. It's certainly the
best mingw enabled development tool for ROS I've come across. ;)
