Thiruvallabhan, Linux is a very simple Operating System as Linux. If You Know windows then you can use linux also.
for learn networking and mysql you must go for a linux cource or use internet.

I konw something about Oruma in KSEB. Its a good approach. Congratulations for the decision.

if you have a linux system and internet connection you can easily entered into the world of open source software's.


thanks..
