You can try Magic C++.

You can try Magic C++. A handy visual remote Unix and Linux C/C++ IDE under windows just like VC++. It provides a "hello world" template, you can generate a "hello world" project by project wizard, you'll get something fairly easy to use. You can edit the source codes and debug it handily with this VC++ like IDE :-)

Magic C++ download site:
http://www.magicunix.com

Most people use gcc/g++ (>95%, I think). As they're command line tools, there are also graphical IDEs, two most popular are Anjuta and KDevelop, you can also use any text editor, most of them have syntax highlighting (and other features).

Use NEdit/vim/emacs/jEdit to edit your source code.
Use make to manage your builds.
Use g++ to compile your code.
Use exuberant ctags to create a tag file for your editor to load (helps you navigate your source).
Use gdb to debug.
