i think java is one of the best. im learning it in APCS. of course im not that great, im only in high school. in my java book it said that the number of employed java programmers is almost 4x greater than the number of c++ programmers.

Bash. This is a built in scripting language in Linux. Start with that, move on to perl, maybe a bit of php, and C. They all have similar syntax.
IDE's - geany, gambas 2, and gedit.

I depends on what you want to do. Popular languages on Linux are C, C++, Perl and Python

I'm pretty new to Linux as well. I've been using a compiler called Eclipse for C and C++. Eclipse uses the gcc libraries (gcc is a terminal run compiler). I don't have much experience with any other linux IDE's but comparing Eclipse to ones I've used on Windows I'd definitely recommend it.
