Is Linuxmint cinnamon Ok for this? Sent from my DROIDX using Xparent Red Tapatalk 2
Hey guys I have wanted to learn this for quite sometime. I started this journey with the optimus q. I was a windows only guy for a long time but since then I have went full on linux mint. I did away with windows and am currently running linux mint 15 olivia. I am liking linux but I have to say that it is not very user friendly. I am still getting used to the linux system. It has a very steep learning curve. I read in mint forums about not having to run anti-virus and not having to defrag the hard drive and I was sold. I also read where you could set the OS so you could install newer versions and not lose your data. The problem that I'm having with that is the size they recommened isn't large enough to install like eclipse and develop without running out of room. I might upgrade to the mint16 Petra today and try to resize my partitions. Anyway guys thank you for this and am looking forward to learning. I just recently bought a new phone the ZTE Majesty. I have a proclaim and centura that I could use to learn with also.
So there is still WAY MORE to becoming a Developer but this is a really good starting point... AndroidArea51.Com will be holding some Developers Workshops where you will be able to login into either Motorhead or My developer box and learn stuff about developing roms kernels and much more... the cost of these workshops is 3.00 per person and are limited to 5 people at a time... all proceeds from the workshops go to help keep the site up and running to better serve the prepaid android community.
