    Re: Windows Programmers - Read This!

    Also another possible necessary stuffs for C/C++ developing:

    Code:
    > sudo apt-get install build-essential (compiling tools)
    > sudo apt-get install freeglut3-dev   (opengl)
    > sudo apt-get build-dep xorg-dev      (x11 for developing)
    May also be necessary some 32 bit libraries that can be required for some programs:

    Code:
    > sudo apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk linux32 lib32asound2

    Re: Windows Programmers - Read This!

    I did a computing course at high school that was almost all VB6. Coming from that to most of the Linux IDEs the biggest shock, and largest barrier to getting going making ones own little toy projects is there is no obvious way to make a GUI.
    Gambas, essentially a VB6 clone, solves this, whilst I would recommend it to anybody wanting to stay with a basic language it is not widely used. My request is firstly that this guide has a statement equating vb6 on windows with Gambas/some other RAD tool on Ubuntu, and secondly that a link to a guide to make a simple GUI programme is included that shows at least the basics of joining GUI and logic.

    Personally I don't think the transition to Glade/Python is bad.

    I would recommend completely avoiding Microsoft technologies unless you plan on developing native Windows applications.
    I would certainly avoid using Mono given, what at least I perceive it to have an uncertain future. I would also avoid Gambas for the same reasons as well as its slow development cycle, its lack of popularity is reflective of its future ambitions.

    Perl, Python, Java, C++ - all very well supported in Linux and are excellent languages.

    For discussions on Mono, see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...t=boycott+mono

    Future posters, do not debate Mono here.

    (I agree with the above, but many people use Mono and are happy with it)
