Welcome to LQ!

May I recommend that you start with this Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide,
and then read her Bash Guide for Beginners.

After that, you will have a better idea about selecting a programming language.

and, off-site, but referenced here

To learn linux, you need to have a full featured installation.
I would suggest something that works out of the box and needs minimal tweaking, like Ubuntu or its variants.

The first command u need on ur way to learn linux is
Code:
$ man man
Code:
$ man apropos
Code:
$ info info
One thing u need to understand is that a full-featured distro is usually well documented
w.r.t. man pages and infopages. But these are compact and you need to first learn how to use
this documentation before these begin to make sense.

Put simply, the documentation is already in ur box. Use it.!!
