gcc complier

Does gcc complier works with windows( keep mingw out ).
Gcc and mingw are the same thing.
is gcc which we use in linux is mingw?

gcc and mingw are not the same thing. they are equivalent however. mingw is the windows attempt at gcc
The word 'attempt' is slightly demeaning. A more neutral description would be a Windows port of gcc.

attempt doesnt have to be demeaning. its just how i talk. i think they did a good job with mingw
a gcc compiler does works with windows.
but i am like 93-96 % sure.

no not unless its on a vm. gcc is a linux thing
