about TC saying linux is more practical,
does linux have anything linux specific?

also 3 =4 that's just simply saying 'false'
3<=4 = true

Go to your local book store, look for books about C, disregard books with the MS logo on them, out of those left, read some of the first chapter of each and see how you like the writing and if you understand it.

Sure it does. :lol:
The point of using linux when you learn programming is that you will learn to write code that follows the standards way easier. Not to mention that compilers on linux are faster too.

That's syntax error, actually.

so if(3=4) is not the same as saying if(false)?

Nope.
= --> assign value
== --> equals

Another reason on why VB is awful for learning.

if (a = 5) -> what I'm trying to do, assign or compare? You really cannot know, you can just guess what I could have meant.

The link on the first page for the C++ tutorial doesnt work. Also, I have decided that Ill learn this lang since I already have a background coding using C. Question though: Is there still a demand for C++ programmers? Looking at elance leads me to think that webdevelopers , PHP programmers are more in demand than C++ programmers.
