    C/C++ is the best language for desktop/laptop games. However, Android games/apps use JAVA (http://mobile.dzone.com/articles/beginning-android-game). I do not know to much about Android development to agree or disagree that C/C++ works when making Android games.

    Here is another good Android programming link - http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/android-game-programming-for-dummies-cheat-sheet.html

    WINE is a great Windows compatibility layer - http://www.linux.org/threads/installing-and-configuring-windows-emulator-wine.4368/

    I think SteamOS is the future of gaming also. BUT, the OS cannot be used to MAKE the games. Only play them.
