Also just to warn you, with Microsoft moving on in the world they soon may not support 32 bit applications, like the ones made in VB. So either try to use a language which has a more distant fututre.
Or join my capain fo eveyrone to keep a computer in their house for "old programs". I shall dominate

I myself am on Kubanto, very stable, safe and open, without cost too.

Windows is more user friendly with it's GUI
Programming is not too much of a worry if youre using C or HTML(to begin with, HTML is easy) although Im not sure what other laguages are applicable
My opinion is that Linux is easier when you get the hang of it, If you know windows very well then adapting to Linux will be a breeze.
However the worst problem you may encounter with Linux is that It gets corrupted too easily when you get power outages at startup. should that happen then the programs you made could goo kaput. installing two OS (that let's you choose which os to use at start up) may be a safe idea [dual os]

Dont know, but to be honest, i wouldnt use anything but windows to program in. Now days 101% of computers use windows, so compatibilty is buil right in. Also i found that using liunx as an OS was bad enough.
completely irrelevant....doesn't matter what o/s you write the program in...if you program it for windows...it will work in windows....
linux is a great O/S for programming...as it's built for and by programmers...EMACS is a great program to code in....you just have to know what you're doing...just like anything else.

for new distributions of linux, most of the major problems have been worked out. Even though it might not be all that great for playing games on or supporting the newest and best hardware, linux will always be the best system on which to program. I don't even bother installing compilers in windows these days. I just boot up linux and its all there.
