Hmm...picaxe or adruino...

Hey guys, I've been lurking around this forum and read a LOT of info on building robots! (Been digging up old posts @_@) I've noticed that Arduino uses C (?) as the language. I have experience in C++ and currently taking C++ courses at the moment (CS major :) ) Would Arduino be a better choice for me? I wanted to get the Bare Bones Board but I'm afraid I might do something wrong in the soldering process. I found the Arduino Starter kit: http://www.adafruit.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=68
It looks REALLY tempting but it's $65 :/ Do you guys think it's worth it? I think it comes with ATmega168 chip, is that the 'brain'? Will I have to solder the motor driver and other stuff to the thing on the right of the breadboard (in the picture)? Thanks in advance!
