Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been reading C++ tutorials and stuff online and want to start making my own programs and stuff. one of the first things I noticed is that I have to have a compiler. the page I read mentioned that most GNU os's come with a compiler. I can't find any kind of compiler right now. So where do I start for the compilers and what not for C++?
when you create a program you will use an option like this: g++ -o <filename> <other options>. This filename is your result and is executable, so you can run it just by typing the name.
For example g++ -o helloworld helloworld.c will create a file named helloworld and you can execute it as: helloworld.
gerdy, you need to specify both the source and the resuld files, like:
g++ -o <result> <sources>
In your example you have not specified any source (or input) file, just an output file which was /home/ethan/Desktop/hello.C
