I'm beginning to delve into C++, and recently ordered this book (due to arrive Wednesday, the 28th). I realize that C++11 has some of the latest and greatest features, and would definitely like to start with that as a base, unless completely recommended against.
I have access to VS2012 and 2013 (Up to and including Ultimate) through the Dreamspark program. I'm also not afraid of installing any Linux distros if that would be better suited for accessing C++11 features.
I know VS2012 doesn't support all the new features (and I don't think any compilers really do all the features, yet). When I tried googling, I couldn't find anything really mentioning VS2013's support for it that also compared to other IDEs and compiler.
I'm looking for any recommendations on how to proceed here. What do you use for your IDE/Compiler?
