    As it was noted, Turbo C++ and TASM are NOT languages. Those are IDEs.

    But then, I can see You need compilers for C, C++ and ASM (those are languages).
    GCC with YASM should be all You need.
    You can install them all with:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential gcc gcc-doc g++ yasm
    If You need any help running those compilers, tell us :)

    P.S. It would be nice if this forum would support attaching shell scripts ;)

    You can get a free version of Oracle called Oracle Database XE, but it only works on Linux x64 and only allows 1 database per machine that it is installed on, so I do not know if it will meet the requirements of your school.

    1. LibreOffice (not OpenOffice because Oracle is the devil)
    2. Ctrl + Alt + F1 (or plain ol' terminal)
    3. Migrate to MySQL or PostgreSQL
    4. Code::Blocks (As others have said, Turbo C is an IDE.. and ancient)
    5. http://www.opencobol.org/ (First thing to come up in Google)

    If you absolutely, without a doubt, NEED to use Turbo C, try running it under WINE. Code::Blocks has worked just fine for me. I have a Turbo C++ book sitting on my shelf. I think the code should be compatible, it's just how it's interpreted.

    The idea of GNU/GPL is that software shouldn't just be free, it should be open. "Free as in free beer." Anything you can "apt-get install" will not cost anything.

    Also, Core 2 Duos aren't slow. I'm willing to bet they'd be plenty fast if you wiped them and reinstalled Windows, not that I don't like Linux.

    Remember that Linux on the desktop is only user friendly when you're doing things that Ubuntu has preconfigured for you. Anything after that is going to be a long day of "sudo chmod 755" this and "./configure; make; make install" that. (..and the occasional "sudo rm -rf /" when you hate everything.)

    mafia97, You can get a COBOL compiler with this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install open-cobol
    Sorry that I forgot about this one when I wrote my previous post.

    Don't write such things. That will only give FUD for most non-veterans. And writing about "sudo rm -rf /", without explaining it's just a joke, is just plain wrong. As someone might just try to run it.
    NOTE: DON'T run "sudo rm -rf /". It DELETES Your whole filesystem. i.e. it WIPES your HDDs!!! So DON'T do it!!!

    I also wouldn't recommend running
    Code:
    sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda

    You can be super mischievous and learn all there is to learn about rm.
    Code:
    man rm
    It will give you...
    Code:
    RM(1)                                                                                                        User Commands                                                                                                        RM(1)
    
    NAME
           rm - remove files or directories
    
    SYNOPSIS
           rm [OPTION]... FILE...
    
    DESCRIPTION
           This manual page documents the GNU version of rm.  rm removes each specified file.  By default, it does not remove directories.
    
           If the -I or --interactive=once option is given, and there are more than three files or the -r, -R, or --recursive are given, then rm prompts the user for whether to proceed with the entire operation.  If the response is not
           affirmative, the entire command is aborted.
    
           Otherwise, if a file is unwritable, standard input is a terminal, and the -f or --force option is not given, or the -i or --interactive=always option is given, rm prompts the user for whether to  remove  the  file.   If  the
           response is not affirmative, the file is skipped.
    
    OPTIONS
           Remove (unlink) the FILE(s).
    
           -f, --force
                  ignore nonexistent files, never prompt
    
           -i     prompt before every removal
    
           -I     prompt once before removing more than three files, or when removing recursively.  Less intrusive than -i, while still giving protection against most mistakes
    
           --interactive[=WHEN]
                  prompt according to WHEN: never, once (-I), or always (-i).  Without WHEN, prompt always
    
           --one-file-system
                  when removing a hierarchy recursively, skip any directory that is on a file system different from that of the corresponding command line argument
    
           --no-preserve-root
                  do not treat `/' specially
    
           --preserve-root
                  do not remove `/' (default)
    
           -r, -R, --recursive
                  remove directories and their contents recursively
    
           -v, --verbose
                  explain what is being done
    
           --help display this help and exit
    
           --version
                  output version information and exit
    
           By default, rm does not remove directories.  Use the --recursive (-r or -R) option to remove each listed directory, too, along with all of its contents.
    
           To remove a file whose name starts with a `-', for example `-foo', use one of these commands:
    
                  rm -- -foo
    
                  rm ./-foo
    
           Note that if you use rm to remove a file, it might be possible to recover some of its contents, given sufficient expertise and/or time.  For greater assurance that the contents are truly unrecoverable, consider using shred.

    man pages are your best friend. :cool:

    It's also customary to put your flags before your arguments.
    Code:
    # Weird
    rm * -rf
    # Normal
    rm -rf *
    Both work but the first reads weird imho. So if I write a command it looks something like this (i put long opts after short opts.)

    Code:
    rsync -av --checksum ./some/dir/* some.remote.host:/some/remote/dir

    Too bad...
    But it's a little odd - one could say Ubuntu is the epitome of "ease of work" these days. Hmmm....

    Maybe they didn't used it much, Ubuntu (I prefer Xubuntu) is a very nice piece of OS and is very easy. I use it on my netbook along Windows.

    A: You can close your own threads.

    B: A computer science department said that Ubuntu is too hard to use?! Might want to change schools. :confused:

    Thanks, I did not know I can close threads I started. No mod inrtervention needed. :)
    @ mafia97: the option is under "thread tools".

    I think that it is more complicated in reality, when it comes to IT departments and Linux. Employees are simply not in a position to "learn Linux" because they must "function" at high level immediately when doing a roll-out of Lionux systems.

    You find time for things that are important. I question the competence of system admins who don't think that linux is worth knowing, at least to some reasonable level. I'm willing to bet you that a system admin who doesn't think Linux worth knowing and works with Windows machines doesn't know how to use PowerShell. The most powerful tools are the ones you have to learn if you want to truly good at what you do. It's not a good sign when you need to do something fast and you're browsing through an interface and attempting to "find" what you have to do.

    Also linux is a great tool in education for students who are going into computer science or IT. It would be a shame not to use it.

    I am very sad to say the tech knowledge in India is very dissapointing, people just want to get their job done, they dont want to know how it is done or what happens when you do it other way round.
    people just have bare minimum knowledge to run computers(teachers in most cases have even less), recently a well know company came to give seminar in our college, and you wont believe what the representative said, she said HULk is green because the green color in RGB while redering hulk was turened off by mistake, red and blue resulted in gree, thats why hulk is green.I thought of killing myself at that moment.
    Though the tech knowledge is bad, teacher know how to teach their subject and can answer any question in syllabus, plus my college is best in the region, so i wouldnt change it :)
    sorry guys for the rant. CLOSING THREAD NOW
