I only thought linux might be easier because it has thousands of small programs that preform a singular task very well and in linux you can tie whichever small programs you need together to make one program that does just about whatever you need.
very cool, I have a desktop and laptop at home that run Linux so it's worth a shot....

i don't mind tinkering with Linux...

i have no experience in programming or any formal training so if I get some time to tinker with it, I'll def give it a go.

Ok, so not a school project. Sorry for jumping to conclusions, but I've seen that plenty before (not here).

As far as internet access, EVDO is getting more popular, and provides internet access via cell phones. So, if there is cell coverage in that area, you *could* access this stuff online.

As far as creating an offline system built in-house, I'm not sure what you would do other than get into some serious amateur programming.
