Alright /g/, I fell for the C and linux meme. I wanna get into C and learn some linux in the mean time, emacs and org-mode.The thing is that I'm unsure what distro I should install, I don't wanna dive in with [spoiler]gentoo[/spoiler], but I don't know if I should go with ubuntu/debian or if there's any other distro more suited for C development.
>>70178011Any distro will do but binary distros like debian will get you started more easily.
>>70178011>ditro more suited for C development
>>70178011Every Linux distro is suited for C development. You need a text editor and GCC.If you need a noob distro, try Linux Mint.
>>70178011Just use Ubuntu, or you could just be a windows users and install an Ubuntu subsystem just so you can have a server like interface while still having the things you are used to.Personally I use Ubuntu for everything so that's my recommendation if you actually want to get work done.
>>70178036FPBP. I don't even understand why we need other distros, except Gentoo for minimalism and maximum configuration that even Debian won't have.
>>70178011In every distro c development is the same. Open any text editor and type your code, and run a compiler in a terminal.
>>70178244Alright, thanks a lot man, can I install emacs/org-mode without any trouble on ubuntu?
Try out Mint if you want a close to Windows experience so you get accustomed to Linux faster and easier and still want the wide availability of software of Ubuntu (Mint's based on Ubuntu and runs all Ubuntu programs). You could also try Manjaro with your DE of choice in case you want an Arch-like experience and go with real Arch afterwards.
Windows is better for C development unironically because you can use Visual Studio or CodeBlocks which are widely regarded as superior IDEs.

>>70178011Fedora is great. Don't use anything Debian-based.
>>70179309>visual studio>code blocks Disgusting
I was about to type 'Install Arch', but those fedorafags are rights. It isn't worth it, install Fedora
>>70179309>Windows is better for C developmentwoah it must have better environment than unix environment>because you can use Visual Studio or CodeBlockslmao.jpg
How do you design a GUI for Windows if you're coding under Linux?
