I believe that when I said "from my experience", it's to say from my perspective & not necessarily the way things are. I'm not really sure why you need such an attitude about it.
Maybe rather than being condescending & pointing out your idea of flaws on this tutorial, you could become a member here & submit your own tutorials sharing with us your knowledge & experience in game development.

I know I'm necroing myself but I think it's important to note that just because something is the industry standard doesn't mean it's a good thing, I mean why are you poking around Linux in the first place when "clearly Windows is the standard for games"? hee hee-!

um using Ubuntu 11.04
i can compile the hello world part, but it wont run for some reason.
and the SDL on wont compile because the sdl header is missing.
the package manager said that sdl was installed.
so what am i supposed to do now ?

I did the sdltest.c section simply copy/pasting your code into my newly made file. and did the same for the "Makefile" for the sdltest, but when I tried to compile the Makefile for the sdltest.c here's what I got:
Running tool: Build
Using Makefile from ~/Desktop/sdltest
make: Entering directory `/home/tina/Desktop/sdltest'
gcc -c sdltest.c
gcc -lSDL sdltest.o -o sdltest
sdltest.o: In function `main':
sdltest.c:(.text+0xa): undefined reference to `SDL_Init'

make: Leaving directory `/home/tina/Desktop/sdltest'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [compile] Error 1
any help would be great!
