my name is t.rex and i am new to this group! i have known about linux for years now and have always been a supporter of its ideas of open-source and less-commercial programming. but i never took the initiative to learn more about it for myself...until now...
i don't know much about programming, but i've been reading up and trying to learn more. i am thinking about transitioning to a linux system, or maybe partitioning my laptop to have both the existing windows xp and linux, but i'm not sure how to proceed.
from what i've read, the first step is to download the linux system and perhaps python or perl [for learning programming]. i am confused about what version of linux i should dl.. all i know is that i want my computer to be secure, used for programming as i learn, and also for multimedia [to produce music, edit films, graphic design etc.]
i am from the bay area, but currently live abroad, which allows for more time to dedicate to this endeavour... so you'll probably be hearing more from me in these coming days, heh. any advice or guidance would be much appreciated!
