http://ubuntuforums.org – In am overwhelmed by the development tools. I have done visual basic6. The QT gui maker looks like VB6 but requires C+ and I would need to take some course to learn how. I want to be able to install hardware. I want to write midi sound programs with object oriented programming like VB6. What computer courses should I take? Please respond. After two months of trying to solve issues with no help i am willing to spend time and money going to school to learn how to solve my own problems. Is there anyone on the planet that can stop for one minute and guide me? (Hardware)
