XNA/C# is not ideal for indies, has a slightly higher barrier to entry and may require reading through fine print (mostly due to age restrictions and such).
Don't use proprietary languages or libraries if you can avoid it.
Why not? Just because? Granted you could start writing your own Java/C++ games, but UDK, Unity, and to a lesser extent XNA are all free in some form, have single IDEs that work out of the box, and carry no licensing requirements until you start making thousands of dollars. And you can have functioning games/prototypes in an afternoon.

Check out my book, Game Development with Unity, aimed at beginners who want to build fun games fast.
Also check out my personal website at bryanwagstaff.com, where I occasionally write about assorted stuff.
