Hi folks, I am new linux user still learning and I have some questions regarding Linux " Debian especially "

1-)what is the alternative for MS visual studio I was writing Python and C++ using visual studio what IDE/Compiler do we use in debian and how to install it


2-) which kernel version is recommended for me as my laptop is HP ProBook Notebook Intel Core i5

3-) When I was Windows user when I play a video via VLC it uses less than 2% of CPU when I was testing on Ubuntu to be honest it used 5% of CPU what the problem could be ?




Many thanks in Advance

Ask them on the Ubuntu forum, Debian is not Ubuntu.

Extraordinary, there still are people who believe Windows? That 2% is most certainly fake.

BTW, there are several generations of i5, if using internal graphics then kernel version matters, yes.

Not fake if the video decoding is handed off to the graphics processor. I can watch 4K h.264 with some applications and va-api on my Skylake GPU and use 3 percent CPU. This in a Jessie derivative with backports.

Two operating systems displaying different CPU usage using same hardware and acceleration - one of them has to be wrong.

You have to be more specific--i5 graphics can range from first (2009) to the current seventh generation. Jessie's stock kernel and drivers should cover up to and including fourth generation.

A good site for finding Linux alternatives to Windows-only software is alternativeto.net.

Regarding IDEs, I looked around semi-seriously a few years ago, and didn't find anything I liked. Eclipse was the most promising IDE I found, but it was unusably slow (on a not particularly powerful workstation), and it didn't have support for C#. At the time, I had not yet heard of Python.

The .net framework is provided in the Linux world by Mono. And the MonoDevelop IDE was created by the Mono people specifically to support C#.

In the last year or so, the following IDEs have caught my eye: (1) Atom and (2) Visual Studio Code. IMHO, those would be worth looking at. There are Debian packages available for both. Instructions for installing are easy to find. They both have support for C#.

For python I use PyCharm, I do find it quite resource hungry but it does provide a lot of convenient tools built in.
