http://crunchbang.org – Dear All,thank you so much for your kind responses - it's true that the #! community are lovely people.I've a bundle of traditional academic learning to get finished before January but will be tinkering away with linux in the background until then. To finally get to the nuts and bolts of how computers work, I'd like to do one of the on-line computer science courses to build some base knowledge (I left school in 1985). Can anybody suggest a course/topics that would teach some basics and lead towards some lightweight programming, ideally finishing in java but probably via python?A (HowTos)
