MSVC has best editor/debugger around.  Download the free express 
version, and you will see it really is excellent.

I no see real reason for use C99 specific code though, sometime it 
is bit easier, but only gcc supports it.  Original code is pure C, 
so will be shame to fork project if C99 will be used. :(
