I have some programming experience in dbase III and FoxPro; and very little in Visual Basic. I want to go Linux. I choose SUSE, have installed & tried to operate. Painfully slow with no help or guidence. I want to be able to write fairly efficient programs; but am not looking to be super-geek.
1) Is SUSE good and where is best training; Novell has beta tape for $200.
2) Does MONO allow someone to program in C++ and run Linux? Should I learn C++ or stick with Linux training?
Thank you for any help - I am sure my questions show my lack of experience.
