    I have been using Ubuntu for a long time and I didn't know exactly what a kernal is. I got surprised on knowing that the kernal and programs were born separately and was joined later. Thanks for the info. :)

    Hi Bharathmuppa,

    Majority of Linux operating system is written in C and C++ (says 20%) and rest in Lisp, Java and Perl. If you good enough in mentioned language and know how linux works, sure you can volunteer in linux developments.

    Developer community don't accept codes from anonymous contributors so its good to build first a social relationship.

    Install virtualbox on your windows and on the top you can install what ever linux you need to learn.

    Good Luck !!!

    No No no. Do not install linux on a virtual. I would go to the pawn shop and shell out about $100.00 to $300.00 for a laptop. A virtual is good for a test bed not a complete system to use.

    I have used it off and on since the early 90s, my first install was Red Hat, but recently "mostly dedicated" myself to only using Linux, currently I am using Zorin 8, but I also have Ubuntu installed on my second comp and pretty much all the popular distros on DVD

    I am interesting in learning Linux. Are there any issues with installing on a Mac machine? I have an old laptop the would otherwise be unused, so I think that would be a good place to get some practice without upsetting the wife with something new she doesn't understand or care to ever learn...

    Do you want unix or linux?what type of linux do you want debian,ubuntu,mint,fedora or anything else?
    Go to the official website of corresponding linux distro and you can download it without any cost.
    for ubuntu- http://www.ubuntu.com/download
    for linux mint- http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php
    etc.
