It does not matter which OS you program in. You will always mess up the OS. Though LINUX is very stable and reliable. Probably X Window System will crash. Make sure you image or backup OS before executing your program. If you want to mess with command line. Use Borland free C compiler. That will get you ready for compiling in LINUX. It comes with everything that you need for many programs including simple 3D graphics.

Microsoft Visual Studio takes several megabytes for one little program. Borland takes up little space. I don't think you need a dll file for your program that was compiled in Borland like in Visual Studio.

If you want to make programs for LINUX, Windows, and maybe MACs, you can use trolltech. Latest versions of distributions are including trolltech designer.

Like many have said. Its up to you.
