any i386, i486, or i586 distro will work on your pentium...

kde 3.0 will work, but that's a very old version, and it might suck...

also, kde is very resource-hungry... it would probably be very slow with those specs...

you might wanna use someting lighter, such as xfce, icewm, fluxbox, etc...

yes, c and c++ are completely supported... there's PLENTY other supported languages...
