I'm a content guy. Trust me, not a programmer. But in this world you need to understand the fundamentals of programming if your interested in developing new applications. And new applications are where the fun and money are hiding. The fun is in the development of new ideas, the money, it'll come as a reward for new and innovative applications. So far I've been a Windows OS user; it's what I grew up on. Have I been alseep at the wheel though?
Reading posts in the Web Programming forum leads me to believe that I've been alseep for quite some time. Could I ask a favor? I know I'm starting at the bottom of the learning curve here, but could someone please describe for me the advantages of operating systems other than Windows. I know this is basic stuff, but I sure would appreciate some help and or resources to learn a bit more.
I'm off to the library today to get a few manuals on Unix and Linux. Time to wake up and smell the operating systems.
