Like the topics says, I'm new to this,
Right now I'm using a circa '97 455 mhz celeron HP with 192 mb of ram...
Besides the obvious (to switch to a much, much newer, nicer rig which I plan to do soon ) are there any suggestions?
In particular any pointers on practicing before i switch, what to switch to, and anything else that helped you.
I like Ubuntu and fedora Linux distros so something compatible with these would be great; I'd hate to have to go crawling back to Microsoft and my mac is a g4 imac that I'm not root on... so something wine compatible or that runs natively on Linux would be amazing.
At any rate please excuse my ramblings and please give me advice.
