I tend to use YAML; it's similar to JSON, but it's more human readable.

Plain text, or some representation of your own design is only good if you don't intend for other people to modify your files (unless they're very simple). If you do intend the files to be modifiable by other people, using something with a standard is generally a better idea.

The problem with VC++ is that it's very permissive about code that's not standards-compliant. If you spend too long on a project in VS without trying to compile it in g++, chances are you'll end up with a mass of incomprehensible errors and a project that should in theory be portable to linux is locked into windows.
That said, VS is an excellent IDE.

You may use the /Za switch to disable Microsoft specific language extensions.
