The problem with Red Hat is, unless you're paying for it, you will not be able to do a lot with it, like installing software (unless you want to compile everything, or hunt down each every RPM package from elsewhere that you need), get technical support from Red Hat, etc.

I'd really suggest you have a look at this.

I find it VERY hard to believe you found absolutely NOTHING about development on RHEL, since it's one of the most widely used enterprise Linux OS'es on the planet. And how do you think we'll be able to help you learn Linux?? That's a very open-ended question. However, you can learn Linux just like you learned Windows or Mac....USE IT. How did you learn those things? This is no different.

Any of them, except for the versions designed for servers (like RHEL, CentOS, Scientific, SLES, etc.). All of them have pretty much the same development tools, IDE's, libraries, and graphics support. Fedora is a decent choice, as is openSUSE, Debian, or Ubuntu.

Perhaps there is a language barrier for OP. He may mean not finding free support, if so then look into CentOS, the free version of RedHat or Fedora the test bed for RedHat. However, as TBOne pointed out any of the non server oriented major distros will do. Regarding "learning Linux", use the search function on this forum, there is a tremendous wealth of info. in/on here, and that has to be one of the most frequently asked questions over the years.

Welcome to the forums.

How about this?

We should not recommend which Linux DISTRIBUTION you should use, you should pick one that you like by examining them. There are tons of guides and meanwhile this forum, Linux - Newbie has a sticky thread, Linux Newbies - How To Choose A Distro. Quite a few members here contributed to that for the final copy made by MillJ. Please give that a look.

(I say Distribution all caps because Linux itself is the OS, but the varied types of Linux are different distributions)

If you want to be a gaming developer, then you should look up game development software. I have no particular recommendations, there is a Linux - Games forum, but mostly I feel it is about playing them versus writing them.

The best way the LQ forums work is when you show what you have tried and share your thoughts. Stating that you have no idea and want complete guides from people about how to do things is not helpful.

You may get answers for complete guides, some of them may not match what you're looking for.

Please update the forum with some additional information about what you've tried and what you've considered for distributions and software development options.

I think about.com became dotdash.com.....

nevermind, I see that dotdash is the umbrella group, lifewire is the tech branch....

I think it split into two parts. The link I cited used to be "linux.about.com."
