Realistically, if you want to develop native binaries for Windows your options are limited to either Microsofts compiler (the one distributed with Visual Studio) or MinGW (as suggested by gerwinjansen). There are a few other options but you are unlikely to find great support in terms of IDEs (MingGW can be integrated into a number of IDEs, including CodeBlocks and CDT) or 3rd party libraries.

In all honestly, love it or hate it, Visual Studio is probably your best bet if you're looking to develop Windows apps - especially if you are looking to code up Windows 8 specific applications.
