I'm new to the operating system UNIX and have just started studying it in college. I have been programming in C and C++ for about 3 years using Turbo C++ under windows. I would like to MASTER C under UNIX and master the operating system UNIX too. I am running Win XP professional
My system specifications are
433 Mhz celeron
128 Mb Ram
40 Gb hard disk Primary
4 Gb Secondary
PCQ linux 2004 on a 2GB partition on the secondary hard disk .
The thing is that in college we telnet into a Unix machine and use some CUI based UNIX ..
I wanted to know , what is the best way to learn UNIX and where to download and install it from .
Will PCQ Linux serve the purpose of programming in C under UNIX ?? Can i program the same way i do in college on a LINUX terminal ?? ???? Will a C program support graphics in LINUX like TURBO C++ does ... functions like outtextxy etc. is it possible to do such graphics in linux ???
Lastly , i would like to know how to start learning prgramming in C under UNIX , and how to Master it and thouroughly understanding the operating system too ..
please keep in mind im NEW to the OS ..
Thanks a ton ...
