Well, for the most part it's set up to become a great development
environment by default. You can install Eclipse using `sudo apt-get
install eclipse`. In order to install the g++ compiler, type `sudo apt-get
install g++`. The only issue I can foresee is having the development
libraries (as they're not installed by default), but that's a simple `sudo
apt-get install <package>-dev`.

Hope this helps out some. I don't use Eclipse personally (preferring the
ways of vi) but this should give you some pointers.
