I am curious as to what developers use to develop applications for the Android platform.  What framework do they use and what software is usually used to develop the Apps.  Please keep in mind that I have Windows Vista.  Thanks!

You can use the open source application Eclipse: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/

Here is a little about the Eclipse Foundation: http://www.eclipse.org/home/newcomers.php

I prefer Eclipse Classic or Eclipse C/C++. It really depends on what language you're more familiar with. If you're just starting out I would definitely pick Classic.

There aren't any real advantages. I guess the most important thing is that all the tutorials and getting started articles that google/eclipse hosts are for Classic.

I also suggest that you read up on XML if you don't already know it. Android's UI uses XML. It's not like Visual Basic where you drag components around on a form. Just putting it out there since I don't know your programming background.
