I have a question which is more popular for arch linux open office or office libre. Next do i have to install each program individually example word, then powerpoint then this then that. I find that when install programs no one ever makes a suite that has everything inlcuded I understand why it's indivudal but if the entire thing is maybe only 5gs and you have a 1td hardrive it is not going to kill you.

Yeah, pacman rocks

The command flags can be combined with crude scripting, for example to remove orphaned packages (and their configuration files):
Code:
# pacman -Rns $(pacman -Qqdt)

Visual Studio is not a compiler, but an IDE (that uses the compiler of the Windows SDK, but can be configured to use other compilers). If you are really looking for just a compiler go for GCC or Clang/LLVM, if you instead are seeking an IDE, there are many available, for example Eclipse, Code::Blocks, Anjuta, ... . Many people just use Emacs or Vim (with plugins) as IDEs.

I require both.

I am trying to be self-sufficent and completely detach myself from windows. Seems like there is some random hurtle but I enjoy the challange but not always the time or the knowlege. Today for example I found out we are going to be using databaes and we need to use oracle and mysql. I don't know if it has compatibility just yet. I am thinking i need to get a VM working and install windows as a easy solution to some of these small inconviences.

Then go to their website and look for it. Both, Oracle and MySQL, are very well supported on Linux, in fact Oracle even distributes their own Linux version, based on RHEL.

MySQL:

Oracle:

When running Arch looking for information in their Wiki is the first thing you should do.

.... >>> SO <<< true. Very important advice ... There is next to nothing I have not been able to figure out by starting with the Arch Wiki. It is VERY comprehensive and almost always well-written.

Cheers,
