http://ubuntuforums.org – Simple question, at least I think it is. Where did you learn to program on Linux, I'm seriously having trouble finding a reliable resource :( any books, websites or people you can reference me to? I want to learn the same way others did, that way I know for a fact the resource is reliable :) thanks for any and all help, this is seriously getting difficult for me and it shouldn't be as hard as I'm making it out to be just to find a way to learn >< (Hardware)
