I use CodeBlocks IDE with MinGW. If you mind portability of your code, you should choose that one.

"Visual C++ is ok also for users like me that only know c language ?"
Yes, C++ is C compatible.

If you want to use Visual C++ Express you have to download the Platform SDK (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A55B6B43-E24F-4EA3-A93E-40C0EC4F68E5&displaylang=en) to get all necessary opengl libraries and friends.
