Essentially only the official MingW 3.4.5, I also have an older
dev-cpp with separate MingW which is on the Windows path behind the
official MingW.

I also installed some time ago  Microsoft Visual 2005 Express Edition.
But I never use it, since it's not compatible with python. (I don't
have 2003 Edition)

In general, setuptools and MingW work very well, so I never needed to
dig more into the compilation details. (The only exception is that I
don't have Boost for MingW, since there is no premade installer.) My
compiler knowledge is almost only cut and paste and `setup.py bdist`.
