Grab "cygwin" and install a bash shell for windows, the GCC compiler, 
automake, make and vi.  Do not install emacs because it has a speech 

There is a certain bias I have that tends to think that visual 
programmers do not tend to be able to write compilers and the such.  If 
command lines are a barrier to entry, wait till you meet hexcodes and 
relocatable memory addressing.  However that may just be that I'm a 
command line junkie and a bit of a techno-bigot.
