Microsoft has just released the Visual C++ 2003 Toolkit: A free download containing the full C/C++ optimizing compiler and the static linking CRT and standard C++ library (with STL). In other words, all the basic command line tools for building actual applications with full optimizations. This is a great adition for people that have been trying out Visual C++ Standard Edition, or for using in build servers, etc.

Way cool
