    General question

    So I'm relatively new to coding, and I might sound like a noob right now. I'd like for my laptop to have a code-friendly environment. I currently use Secure Shell client to create and compile code. But I don't want to depend on connection to a server anymore. I also have a VM Virtual box with Ubuntu if that makes any difference.. haha. o.o
    Suggestions?

    Install the IDE of your choice(I prefer Eclipse CDT... the Indigo version is better than anything else I have ever used)...or (....or skip them in favor of the terminal. )
    Set up an svn(or other) repo somewhere in /var/ .
    Check if you have the latest gcc...and the other tools.


    As is commonly said, *nix Operating Systems are themselves a big Integrated Development Environment!!

    2.The fast and unsteady suddenly falls asleep while running !

    That's a pretty good place to start.

    You can easily set up a share folder with vbox to allow your vm-ubuntu and windows to see the same files (for later uploading), and you still have windows if you still need it.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
