For $500, you could get a Nexus 4 and still have quite a bit left over. Though if storage is a concern, go with the S3 as the Nexus storage can't be expanded by a micro SD card. The specs of both phones are fairly similar, so for day to day use you likely wouldn't notice any difference between the two.

In terms of software and programming; Android > Windows mobile. Any day of the week. Android is also completely 100% open source and if you know what you're doing, you can completely customize your phones OS. You can even overclock the CPU if you feel you need more performance, at the cost of battery life of course.

Though if your budget is already $500-550, you should think about waiting a couple months and save another hundred bucks or so. Samsung is releasing an S4 with stock Android, like what the Nexus runs. The stock 'droid will be drastically easier to root and modify.
