After letting it go a few months ago, I'm back to learning PHP. At the moment I use it on WindowsXP with Apache and MySql.
I dont want to reinstall my computer but want to go the whole LAMP way by using Linux. So got myself a cheapish laptop for this purpose.
Just a bit confused what Linux to use. A few months ago I downloaded and installed Fedora Core, and ended up reinstalling windows because it was such a hassle with drives and applications.
But will go with what you guys suggest. All I will use this computer for is LAMP. So dont care about no fance user interface. Just want to be able to develop using xhtml, css, php, mysql, etc.
The main reason I do this is for good experience with this technologies (.net is NOT popular here in China, but I can get a new job every day if I know LAMP, or even just PHP!). Please keep this in mind when making suggestions....what is best to use to get some good experience.
