hello all, i doubt you remember me, i asked wether i should get Linux donkey's years back, well, i forgot
anyways, i'm once again intrested in getting it, i'm a programmer, and want to develop my skills further, i do mainly web design and small open source app's, i'm intrested in getting Linux simply because: Trying to program, within Windows, is like trying to dance, in a straight jacket.
The web generally runs off of Unix, so getting a form of Unix to develop my skills only makes sense, at the moment i'm looking into getting Debain, simply for stability reasons...
so, my quistions are as follows:
1. Were can i find Debain?
2. Can one of you guide me in installing it?
3. Can you suggest me some good reading material (e-books or otherwise)
4. Is their a good IRC channel i can go-to for help?
5. Is their a large learning curve involved with learning Linux / learning to run it?
