Do i need Visual Studio to program and compile UE4 Games?What about Linux?
I have a Windows 8.1 System, i seen many winows UE4 Users use Visual studio to compile and program their UE4 Games, do i need Visual Studio? I already have it but can i use another editor? And i do most of my developing on my ubuntu system, what IDE do i use for that?

That's a more complicated issue. To program C++; yes, to write blueprint, no. Blueprint can only be edited and created in the editor.
Whatever you normally use.
You need some kind of build system; but it doesn't have to be VS.
You should probably:
1) Hit https://www.unrealengine.com/ue4-on-github and link your github account
3) Build the engine from source (read the github docs)
The various command line shell scripts for projects are located in UnrealEngine/Engine/Build/BatchFiles/Linux/
