Yes, very many software developers use Ubuntu, to develop any conceivable kind of software. However, I think your question is a bit broad, try narrowing it down to what you want to know. – zwets Mar 14 '13 at 7:04

@Vipin, There is no such Ubuntu version, but you can install all the necessary tools required for software development via apt-get as the repository has the most commonly used development tools present in it. – Chirag64 Mar 14 '13 at 8:15
