Visual C++ 6.0 is very good, however very expensive. I bought a copy for $300!!! However, DevC++ is free and I have heard a lot of good comments about it.
In terms of books and other software, books are great. Most assume you know nothing about what the books topic is, whereas tutorials require some general knowledge.

I've never looked at that page before, for good reason - but I just did out of curiosity, and noticed - there's nothing there anywhere remotely representing OpenGL. Does this present an imbalanced picture to newcomers? For newcomers I'd recommend the OpenGL Redbook (freely available of course... free = good doesn't it?), and perhaps Hawkins and Astle's "OpenGL GameProgramming" - that should provide more than enough information to help the novice programmer make a decision.

Good god I've edited this two times, time for bed.
