Ubuntu/Linux dist is required to build a project from a source code, and it requires a pro to build and debug a project/ROM frm source! To make a simple/normal custom, you may even use Kitchen(in Cygwin for Windows) or even in Linux!
For ur question, Ubuntu is better choice!

Thanks

if you are not building from source all you need is

apktool
java jdk
android kitchen
cygwin (if using windows)
notepad++
winrar


There are many guides - best you do some searching for example

Well theming a custom ROM takes a lot of time and for completing the work on time you obviously gonna need some niggas to help you in your work.Well if you have a good internet connection then you can sync up sources and compile ROMs like Carbon,Pac or AOKP Kitkat for this device since we're getting closer to a stable CM11.There are a lot of guides on how to sync a ROM source code on the computer.Search down the threads and start syncing.
