I like Bloodshed''s Dev-C++, which is an IDE that includes MingW, which is a windows implementation of GCC.

The nice thing is, you get the IDE and the compiler in one shot, and the IDE already set to use the compiler.

I think linux and gcc is the easiest way to start down the road. They''re both free. You just install linux, type emacs at the command prompt, write your program, type gcc [filename], and you''re done. All the openGL stuff is (more or less) already setup for you. Of course, installing another OS can be a hassle. . . On the windows side, i use borlands command line compiler v5.5. It''s a free download, and wasn''t very difficult to setup openGL.
