Hey all, Im without a doubt a still a rookie programmer, and my hardware knowledge could be a bit more expansive. But im going to be building a new computer in a few months. Looking to spent around 1500 on the machine and I rather not make 2000 by buying windows 8 or even windows 7. So I was consdering Ubtanu. However I am building this for both gaming and for my programming, (side projects and maybe even some work related stuff). And im not the best when it comes to working with stuff that operates "under the hood" so to speak when it comes to operating systems. I have worked with linux quite often but thats just doing basic command line routines as well as some shell scripting.
Would you guys advice I use ubantu to save a few bucks or would you say ubatnu is not for me??
