Question website creator question


Hi Guys,

I want to create a simple website. I'm an IT Consultant and just want to show the services that I do, areas I go to, prices etc etc etc
what program can I use to accomplish this? siteground is hosting my site and I have the ability to upload using FTP.
I used Dreamweaver to upload an "under construction sign" and that's about it.
I hate using w$ndows and every time I want to work on the site I have to boot to xp wait probably 15 minutes until I could start working on the site.
thanks guys!

Probably not the answer your looking for, but for a simple website I would use a text editor and manually enter the HTML code. For graphic creation and editing I would use GIMP.

Of the two I prefer bluefish. I'm not a hard core web developer, more like a command line junkie. I like to do things simple so when I work on a webpage I like vi.

Ah, the lost art of manual web development.

LOL... I'm a command line junkie too! even when I have to work on a w$ndows computer first thing I do is cmd (enter) lol I'm lucky that the company I work for uses a POS system that the GUI is only the POS.. if you need to do real work you have to run CMD! thanks for the advice! I will def give it a try!
