Ubuntu & Windows
Hello people, i´m starting in programming and i don´t have a windows computer, so I thought that if i download Ubunto and install it with a virtual machine would be similar to programming in windows?
Is it different programming in Ubuntu? and is it possible to program on a virtual machine?
That'll be just about all you need to set up in order to follow the tutorials pretty much to the tee. Some of the console commands will be different though. Such as building a program instead of "blahblah.c -o blahblah.exe" I believe it's "./blahblah". Feel free to correct me however. Good luck!
To add on to Duodecillian's response... Some of the C code is Windows specific, so keep that in mind. We did these videos in Windows because we assumed that the majority of our users would be using Windows (over 70% are). In our upcoming C# course we will mix both Linux and Windows.
Thanks for the responses! and yes almost everybody use windows but i don´t have money yet to buy a laptop
I would like to know if it would be possible if you guys could/would add an appendix to the "leaning programming lessons" containing the *inux commands for compiling and the whatever is directly related to it. I don't know how big of a pain that would be. But it sure would help the other 20% of us that want to learn how to program!
Even if you decide not to do this, Wibit.net is still by far the greatest place I have ever seen to learn how to program! Thanks a ton! And I'll just learn the *inux stuff from the school of "Hard Knocks", that's how I've learn what little I know now. hehehe
All the best to ya!
And Thanks Again!

This blog is a reminder that cheating in software development can get you into big trouble. Sometimes developers get really really lazy, OR are pressured to write something using overly simplified data structures. Almost every time this happens you are bitten in the butt! Sometimes the problems show up immediately and other times it may take months or years (especially in integrated systems).
