Hello. Ill just say Im a little intimidated hear. Ive spent about an hour and a half reading through your forums and have to admit, that I understand almost nothing. My computer usage has been limited to following a few blogs(basketball and finance) a couple of games, (Mybrute and business tycoon online) quick google searches to settle IRL disputes, and of course the random browsing of the "0ther half" of the internet reserved for the single and unhappily married. I read a book a long time ago about Bill Gates entry into the rich and famous via copyright and have allways been attracted to the idea of free source. I would like to have a system that I can "play" with and learn about. Ill cut it short as to not be TOO long winded.
first things first, I literally know nothing. I have allready downloaded VL 6.0 Standard Edition Gold, but when I try and open it, I receive the "Windows cannot open this file" and "To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it". Im then told that I can search the internet and the results make it look like its supposed to be put on a CD.
I just want to put an os on my computer that will allow me to go online and learn from there.
Also, having a place to start would be nice. I dont know where to go where I wont be a nusence to some community or another with my aborhing lack of knowledge. Please help. Thanks.
