    Is there any form of Python or c++ tools for Linux development. I'm deeply interested in the highly recommended programming that Linux supposedly has to offer.

    Is there some form of console to run these developed productions also. I'm very inexperienced with Linux in General is it easier than a windows system.

    I am not sure what you mean by "Tools" - IDE, compiler, or ? I don't really work with c++ much anymore but it is a universal language. AFAIK, the preferred IDE is Eclipse(which is written in java). I recommend that you find a few tutorials. The main issue that you might run into is that they are a bit dated but they should give you a good basic start. Also, most linux distros come with python installed by default.

    I think you mean the terminal. It should be relatively easy to find depending on your distro.

    I promgrammed a small test program in python and it wouldn't work with windows command prompt(windows programmers notepad python language). I will have to try it on the kubuntu terminal.

    That is so sorry, the attribute of open source determines a face that there are no wonderful IDE for Linux.

    Sad but true. I do not like any of the Linux IDE. There are some decent free ones, but the key word is decent. If you are looking for something exceptional, Linux is not the place to find it. Programming is generally very difficult and most things I know of are Python based.

    That is twice in a row wrong. You can use a LOTS of GREAT IDEs on Linux. Netbeans, Eclipse, are two bigs shots and BOTH are supported on almost every linux. And both are OpenSource.

    And you can turn Editors like Vim easy to an IDE!
    so but back to the Top of this thread:

    I recommend to start with Python, but taking a look about C/C++ is also important. There great How To's, one of the best is "Dive Into Python"

    C always a good fundation of knowledge. It's the basic of modern Computer. So you may should some days to try some work with it. But till then use Python.

    so far

    I personally prefer to use Netbeans as an IDE just because it's somewhat clean and looks like you'd expect a Windows one to look like. Check it out at Netbeans.org.

    For C++ you can find an entire tutorial on their website: http://netbeans.org/kb/trails/cnd.html
