Let me say that I disagree with you that C++ is a good starter language, but I will concede that somebody going after a degree in CS will have to learn it. However, if a degree in CS is what you are going after then Linux or BSD would be the best place to learn. Basically for all the reason you've stated. Many IDE's, available source code to reference, and a wealth support from the community.

Linux and BSD are also good places to start or get into if you have any interest in computer technology regardless whether or not you are seeking a degree.
