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.
