I'm 18 years old and enjoy computer technology and would like to become an advanced user. I would like to one day be able to one day create programs, hack other programs and change things to my taste. I will be attending college and don't have a sufficient amount of money to buy certain tools or hardware but might be able to take computer classes even though that won't be my main course of study. I would like to learn more about linux, and macs since I am now using a mac and linux seems to be a more capable system than windows. Thanks for reading.
