Question Development Environment?

I currently use Windows95/NT4 and Visual Studio 97 to develop C and C++ applications.

Rather than paying MS shed-loads of cash to update to the latest versions, I'd rather switch to an OS that can print "Hello World!" in less than 16K of executable code (plus libraries)!

Is there anything in the Linux world that operates along the lines of the Visual Studio "integrated development environment"? i.e. source code editor with keyword highlighting, compiler and linker integration,version control, error highlighting, source-level debugging, breakpoints, watch etc.

I'm considering Red Hat 7.1 or 7.2 as the OS.
