I have some books with me on PHP, MySQL etc. I have also purchased a couple of books on Drupal 7 as well. My worry is after having read a couple of books on Drupal 7, I am still not able to decide as to which OS of the below 3 I should install Drupal 7 in. I would also use MySQL and PHP with Drupal by default as you know.
I have the following OS with me now all of them on separate pcs.
Win 7 Home Basic 32 bit
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32 bit
Fedora 16 32 bit (will soon install Fedora 18 32 bit)
I do not want to learn Drupal with some ready-made software stack as it looks daunting to me namely XAMPP,
Please guide me. Thanks a lot.
