Year 1's C++ compiler is a compiler that was released in 2005, although I heard they're shifting the y1 curriculum to java. Not sure what UOW uses for java, Im guessing netbeans?

For year 1 at least should be safe lah

Im using an asus laptop I bought for 1.1. Not exactly top of the line. Partition 150gb win, 50gb arch 50gb fedora. More than enough

Year 1 C++ uses Quincy 2005. Even my 2010 poly laptop worked on it.
Year 2 C++ uses Linux with pre configured Gedit and for Java, it requires Eclipse. Might need a laptop/desktop to do assignments at home.

Is it a must to use gedit? I'd assume that it's preconfigured to use either g++ or gcc with certain compile parameters.

For y2, will c++ std 98 still be taught, or will it be taught in 11 or 14?

Yep g++ and gcc. You can use other compiler but your code will be marked using Linux with g++/gcc so it's better to test it 1st before submission as my friend who used visual studio had issue with running the code on Linux unless he change some part of the code when compiling.

Looking at PSB academy & UOW.
For PSB, I have to go for their 9mths diploma because I do have the relevant IT background.
Any recommendation?
