I think many people here have a varying definition of "cheap".

$1K is not cheap (even when I was gainfully employed)....  I don't
program for a living (well, not at home :-) ), and could never justify
$1000 for a compiler setup.... I'll use gcc even if it is not as

Now $1K if your a business and part of your business is programming and
you desire efficiency, than that isn't bad.... but they should offer the
languages separately.... I don't know many people or businesses that
need Fortran, C, and C++....
