    You could use any, although I suspect there are more free products for Windows and Linux then Mac's.

    Windows. Only Windows. It's the best.

    Besides, it's not like *nix and Mac will be around in 20 years anyway.

    Personally, I use and prefer Linux (mostly for the powerful command line), but Apple offers a free IDE called X-Code, which I have heard is decent, and is the standard for OSX development.

    Unix/Linux. If you're going to learn a useless language, you may as well use a useless platform

    if you are having trouble deciding between Windows and Linux, you might want to read the post I made just before you posted this titled something like "Looking for some learning advice...".

    hehe, you wouldn't know...
    I've worked for some of the biggest names in this country, including multinationals.
    Getting paid for something you like to do, could it get better?
    Yes it could, you could get paid A LOT for doing something you like to do which sadly programmers here aren't.
