I've never tried Digital Mars, but it's still developed at least (good). However, compared to OpenWatcom, it doesn't (easily) run on DOS, it's 32-bit DOS extender isn't very friendly (e.g. with WinXP), and it's closed src (not able to be modified/patched). But it supports exception handling in 16-bit DOS (or something like that, no idea) at least. Not sure how good the optimizations are, though. Also, the free downloadable (non-CD) version doesn't have some utils.
