I am programmer who up until now has programmed within a Windows environment using C# and SQL.
I have been granted an interview for a programmer position with a university. The university operates under unix based platforms (probably linux), using Java and Oracle.
While I am confident that I can make the transition, I want to get a head start and begin teaching myself before I get to the interview.
C# is very similar to Java, so I have that covered.
What I need to know is which version of Linux/Unix I should install for learning, and where I can go for tutorials to get me up to speed ASAP. I'm not looking for the easiest one, but more for the one that will be comparable in the most situations.
