You can use whatever you want, you can try them all, just install it in the /opt directory so you can uninstall them if you don't like it. Check out BLFS to see diferent window managers/desktop environments

A Distribution that has a stable gcc is recommended.

I think Slackware is quite good, and debian.

Personally I have had less luck with 4.0 gcc versions, i found 3.x easier.
