It's just that you are asking questions that I think are self explaining when you just try it (things will then be less confusing)
And if you are going to try it, try it the easy/safe way which is a virtual machine
If you use virtualbox 3.0 you can even use the cool 3d effects!

If you need help with virtualbox, just ask.

Well, I think everyone will have a favorite language to program in. Personally, I program in C and python (primarily). Since I already knew a couple of languages before picking up python, the learning curve was almost zero. So, if I need something programmed that I can run on either Linux, Windows, or MacOSX, my first choice is Python. But, that's one person's opinion. Programming languages are very much finding the right tool for the job. Since it's interpreted, I wouldn't use it for something that is computationally heavy, like pattern recognition software. For me, python would rate an 8. It's not perfect, but nothing is perfect.

Actually, I program in a lot of languages, compiled and scripted. Yeah, I can help out with questions you might have with the languages. And, feel free to post them here. It's often better to get multiple opinions about something, so a forum like this is great for that. The best way to learn though is by doing. So, figure out some practice programs, and try to code them. I can help if you get stuck.
