    DS Game Maker is not the only way to go. DS development is globally easier than PC game development because many hardware aspects are as simple as changing a value in memory to update a sprite's position.
    Have you some coding experience already ?

    well, it is still very distant from what I think about when saying "coding experience". You may face odd times staring at something called "makefile" and wonder what is going on. But it may worth checking devkitpro anyway.

    What system are you running ? Mac OS ? some linux flavour ?

    If you want DS Game Maker, you can always try Wine, 'tis what I use to run me Windows games and such
    You could also use a virtual machine and run a Windows OS on it.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but an iMac still wouldn't work with it
    This is based off the assumption that an iMac is still a type of Apple computer though.

    Bootcamp its a a software on mac that allows the installation of windows, making it dual boot, its native windows, its not a VM machine nor emulated.
    so that would work.

    Ooh, that makes more sense.
    I thought he meant he'd go to boot camp.

    you can try Wine... it is a powerful tool for non-windows user.
