I heard of people using Unix, Linux ext. what do you think?

Umm.. how do I put this? The OS that one chooses on really has no bearing on anything, with one exception. If you want to program platform specific applications, you need to use that OS. If you are creating applications that are cross platform compatible, then the OS doesn't matter.

I do C programming using microsoft windows visual studio. Only reason I use it is cause it is supplied by my university. It is user friendly, and since you are new, i would recommend it.
