Too Long; Didn't Read
With Linux, there’s very little you have to do to start working on your first program. The only things you’ll need for this tutorial are a running instance of a Ubuntu- or Red Hat-based Linux distribution. With Linux you can program in some of the most important languages on the planet, such as C++. I'll demonstrate how this is done on both Ubuntu and Red Hat distributions on how to write and compile all from the command line. To run it as a command, issue the command: g++ -o hello hello.
