Which is free (as in beer) for as long as Microsoft wishes. Plus it is no
longer updated and creating a script for VC 2010 requires changes. Finally,
the free VC version does not create x64 builds which I hope LO starts
producing since most (all?) modern CPUs are 64bit...

Last week I made the necessary changes to compile LO with VC2010. It
still requires some tweaks, but I have a full working build available.

You can get the 64 bits compilers in the Windows SDK. In fact the VC
Express Editions are not necessary to compile the product, as the
Windows SDK also ships them.

All the developers agree that we should use open source compilers, and
this will happen. But it's not ready for production yet, so probably
the next few versions for Windows will still be using the Microsoft
compilers. It depends on how many people volunteer to work on that.
