How can I stop my Debian Cinnamon desktop from always starting with the US English keyboard layout?
I had the same problem, and your workaround works well. You can hold the switcher applet (and the switcher keyboard-shortcut) by executing setxkbmap -layout de,us as a startup application. This will work if the topmost listed layout in keyboard settings is US keyboard. If not, then command must be setxkbmap -layout us,de.I think is a strange bug in cinnamon or gnome keyboard settings
Which keyboard layout do you prefer for programming?
I particularly use Colemak and I think many others programmers also do.You can also try Dvorak or Programmer Dvorak if you are more "hardcore" (these layouts change the position of almost 100% of keys from QWERTY)But if you do not want to change, you can still use QWERTY. Since it's the most widely used layout, even for programmers, you wo not have any compatibility issues changing the keyboard layout across different devices. I think the better practice to improve your typing skills , besides the layout, is to learn how to do Touch Typing (typing without seeing the keyboard, just by muscle memory)
How to use Windows US-Intl keyboard layout on a Mac?
You can make the Alt/Option level of Apple's US International PC behave like the version you are used to by creating a custom keyboard layout with the app Ukelele.For reference the Alt/Option behavior of Windows US International is here.Note that on a Mac both left and right alt/option keys normally do the same thing, i. e. create special characters. PS If in fact your right alt key does not produce any characters at all, then something is broken with your keyboard or software.An experimental keyboard that tries to conform to the Windows version can be found here.Note: If you want something like one of the Linux versions of "US International" which have a dozen or more dead keys for making a huge number of diacritic and other characters, then the Apple equivalent is ABC Extended, whose layout is however quite different. For that see this earlier question.

How to avoid keyboard layout automatically changing on windows
I've been getting this problem too as my macbook has it's own non-standard keyboard settings. Windows works by opening any new window in the DEFAULT language. I have found a workaround for this though. When I plug in my USB keyboard (which requires different language settings) I:Any windows opened after this point will use the default language setting.However, any window which was opened before the default language change will still be in the previous language setting so windows will change languages if you switch to it (so you will need to switch those ones manually).I hope that helps!
