can anyone tell me where i can download the source code Ubuntu Linux 6.06 LTS PC version? I really need it! And also advice me on the best programming software to edit the source code. I want to buy the latest version of Microsoft's Visual C++. Will it be enough to edit the Ubuntu source code?
The best C++ editor I could recommend would be Anjuta IDE, which runs on Linux (and runs best on Gnome).
It is similar to Microsoft's C++ editor in many ways, but is open-source and Linux compatible.
Just for the record, you could very easily use Visual Studio to edit the source of anything, including Ubuntu. You'd just need to use a different compiler.
