    Nice to know you made a good switch. ^^

    Yes, like you, After using Ubuntu, my likes and ideas of Windows started to go bad and dark, so I haven't used Windows for the most part of four years. Most of them reasons being that MS is lying, and exploiting people's lack of knowledge of Linux, just to make money off of Linux stuff, and discouraging people from Linux, like with their 2004 'Get the Facts' ad campaigns.

    Though as of programming, I been with Ubuntu for so long, though I haven't tried to work out with programming. So I can't actually suggest something to you.

    If it were me, I'd stick with C#... but that's because I like C# as a language, and hate Python

    Hi and welcome to the wonderful world of Linux.

    Something different for learning Python is to check out the full circle magazine.

    fullcirclemagazine.org/

    They have been running a python for beginners series for many months now, and this would also be good reading for a Ubuntu newcomer.

    Start downloading the back issues !!!!!!

    Regards

    Re: Converted over, need some guidance.

    Thanks again for all the info, I will be reading late into the night with all those links.

    It seems to me that apple has made some type of Linux system their own by just sticking an apple onto it.

    I know every one has a personal preference to programming languages, but what would be the best option to work and program on Linux and then if need be it can be distributed to windows. Most of them are very similar in anyway. Mostly I would like to do some web development(LAMP, ah so this is where python comes in?) and maybe a few apps, but would like to get into cloud integration as well.

    I have to say I Love Linux! Windows only comes on for VS...Every time I explore the terminal I discover something new, nothing I ever would have been able to do with windows.

    Last thought.....Here in South-Africa any PC bought has windows installed, would it be possible to sell PC's without any OS or maybe Kubuntu or something. It feels like there could be a big market for this system if people only knew, and it's hard for them to even try it out too, wonder why. It was an easy change for me after throwing money towards Microsoft to receive nothing in return.

    Thanks again for everyones input, it's appreciated!

    EDIT: I have a good idea for a gym trainer app or website but not sure how to go about it, where can I share what I have done already and maybe get some help? Also if there is a project going that a noob like me can try and participate in?

    Yeah, I saw the documentary "Revolution OS" where people protested against that sort of MS tax.
    Some companies now have a refund policy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_refund

    If you want to create a web application, you might look into Content Management Systems like Joomla or Drupal.
    You can build your webapplication using those CMS as framework,
    so you don't have to build everything from scratch (layout, database, user authentication etc).
    E.g. Joomla uses a framework with objects that you can extend. Or put stuff into the database by just creating a MySQL query and giving that to Joomla's database object.

    Thanx for the input. I have played around with Joomla a bit, it's nice for back end management. I am used to doing everything with ASPX.... but at the moment I am very anti-MS
