I am a programmer but have only used Windows as the development environment till now. I work on Java. I wanted to start developing on Linux and would like to know where to start. More specifically:
- Which Linux to install on my machine?
- What are the basic requirements that I would need to know before I insert the Linux CD in my PC?
- Which packages do I need to install so that I don't have to wait for it to install while first access? I mean like JDK/ MP3 Player/ Open Office/ GCC, etc
