#9: Linux/Windows

The evangelical nature of Linux makes it easy for newbies to get by. We’ve listed a few Web sites here to help you while you’re learning, but there are scads more. And the good news is that everything’s free!

Conversely, because Windows is so ubiquitous, there’s information everywhere?the real trouble lies in deciding which aspect of Windows you want to know about and finding information that is up-to-date and accurate. We’ve included a basic Windows API tutorial as well as a few links to representative material, but this topic is simply too broad to provide any real focus.

Again, we’re not saying you need to become an OS guru, just that you understand the basic principles of each environment.
