I don't understand you concerns.  If you worry about standard
functions, like usleep and sockets and multi-threading, then Visual
Studio won't solve them, since MinGW uses the same runtime C libraries
as the Studio.

I think the real choice is between MinGW/Studio and Cygwin.  The
latter will give you all you want, but the price is that you need to
distribute the Cygwin DLL with your binaries.
