Coming from 9 years experience with Linux (various distributions across the years), I found that reading the books in the order I gave them made a TEMENDOUS difference in both my knoweldge and the usability of the systems. Have fun! David D.W. Downey pgpkeys ----- Original Message ----- From: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Wednesday, December 17, 2003 8:37 PM Subject: Just a question..... I havent seen another os more stable than frebsd and i love it. It uses less memorey than windows and linux. Thats what i was looking for. Now, I love computers and I have to tell you that my hobbie is to test computers, configure them, install operating systems on them and i want to know what i need in order to make programs for frebsd. How to port applications for it. I know that there are help files somewhere in your website or on another. First of all, im not a programmer yet, but i want to be. These are my questions. What programming languages do you use for interacting with freebsd( the kernel,ports)? Where can i get more information on how make programs for freebsd? I plan on going to college to study computer science but i dont want to waste my time studying programming languages like visual basic, even though it wouldnt hurt. I want you to guide me so i wont make a mistake. i know ms software dictates most things in the market because of their business practices but i dont want to get stuck with it. Freebsd is my choice and i want it to be a meaningfull choice in my future career. Thats all i ask for now. with your help in two to four years from now ( or less if possible) you`ll hear from me with what i can provide to you or the freebsd community. Regards, Luis Sime Have a good day. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
