That video has the Visual C++ Express Edition featured, which is a great IDE with a very good debugger. Another option is Code::Blocks which comes with the mingw port of the gcc. That IDE has integrated support for the gnu debugger (gdb).

Turbo C is a dog that's had its day.

does that mean i should just concentrate on programs in Visual C++, or just C++ for instance?


It's the best idea for the sake of portability to use a compiler that adheres as closely to the standard as possible. Turbo C/C++ does not (as it arrived prior to the ISO standard, which was established in 1998). Turbo C/C++ can be a 16 bit compiler (I don't remember which version is) which among other things means that you are restricted to a smaller memory model.

Along with Visual C++ (one of the more recent implementations) there is the Gnu Compiler Collection, which includes g++ to compile C++ (or the equivalent mingw port for Windows)
