On Windows, chimera uses Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 since that is what 
the binaries from python.org use.

For completeness, right now on Mac OS X, 32-bit chimera is compiled with 
Xcode 3.12 on 10.5 and 64-bit chimera is compiled with Xcode 3.2.6 on 
10.6.  And on Linux, chimera is compiled with gcc 4.1.2 on Debian 4.
