> VMWare does not support OS X.
They have a beta for Intel-Mac OSX. Nothing for PPC Mac though.
Expect a full release this summer, with all the great features of
their other VM players.
> Can you be more specific about Ubuntu, what I am supposed to get
Ubuntu is a Linux distribution. You download an ISO or CDR of it ...
like a DMG on OSX except that this contains an image of the CD-ROM.
You can't use it directly on your OSX Mac, but you can burn a CD with
it. Get 6.10.
> I've heard of C++, what is the best way to get started?
Start with 'C' if you don't do C++ yet. If you can learn on your
own, "A First Book of C" might be a starting point; I'm sure there's
online tutorials as well.
> What is Python?
A scripting language. Much like perl, or bash/sh/csh/tcsh scripts -
or AppleScipt if you've done that. Or MATLAB.
