With Boot Camp installed an Intel Mac can boot basically any x86 Linux distribution. But that doesn't necessarily mean it will support all of it's hardware. For instance a lot of Mac's use Broadcom WLAN hardware, which can be a problem.

Most Linux software is written in C/C++. But they build against many different libraries and toolkits, like Qt and GTK, depending on the needs and requirements of the application itself.
