I program using Microsoft's Visual C++, most people find it intimidating but I love it. If you consider using it, just remember it has a very long learning curve but I think it’s worth the effort. I think the best choice for the recreational/novice programmer would be Java, which in many ways are superior to VC++.

Java is a cross platform framework, most of your mobile software is written in it!

WTL is a great alternative to MFC (Microsoft Foundation Classes), WTL is the way MFC should of been designed in the first place. I wont ever use MFC again if I can help it.

I am doing a lot of wxWidgets programming lately. It is a cross platform C++ library, so your programs can be easily ported to other platforms like Linux or Mac OSX.

If you want the ultimate in seed, efficiency and size give Assembler programming a go. Yes you can write Windows programs in Assembler and no its not that difficult. Go to the masm32 website and download m32v10r.zip and you'll be programming in no time.
