Having the linux background certainly can't hurt.

You have remember, since this family, family comes before pride.




I would recommend 2 things.
1) Work on Open Source Projects, this is a great way to learn how to code.
2) Avoid the Microsoft Quickie schools. I don't think they look that great on a resume and if you're looking to work for 30 K, there are many places that would let you start out as an introductory programmer.

Use Firefox.
