I'm new to the community and first time posting so I apologize if I'm doing this incorrectly.
This post got me thinking about my current OS on my netbook. I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 with XP and and it's just terrible. I wanted to use this as my programming computer but unfortunately the codes don't load to my netduino 1 easily. I tried restoring it with no luck and apparently the rest of the world has this issue (missing recovery partition and no CD with computer)....
so getting to my point and question,
I was reading that i can change my OS to android ice cream sandwich 4.0 instead of XP. I also read that Xamarin is the C# tool i would need. I have also considered getting a variation of Lynux like Ubuntu.
I just want to know what your opinions would be before I go changing the OS on this. Which would be my best stable option considering I'm such a newbie?
I am still fresh to all of this and am really excited to be apart of group and don't want to have a bad experience.
I also have a Macbook pro with OS X 10.5.8 and can't get Mono on it so I can't use that currently either. I am chalking that one up to the outdated OS X version and have ordered the new one to give it another go.
Either way, any help is appreciated greatly!
