I would suggest learning C++ first. Although C and C++ both require
memory management, C++ does a lot of the legwork for you, and also
abstracts away a number of things that would have to be spelled out
explicitly in C (vtables, destructors, etc.)

By the way, C# has at least partial support on Linux, through the Mono

Happy hacking!
