I will be starting IVAN’s course on the blockchain and smart contracts programming. I have also decided to setup a Virgin PC with an OS and then all the C++, HTML, JAVA tools needed to get through the course without the distractions of miners, personal info and school work. It will be something I can BrEaK and reIMAGE as required.
I need your input on the basics to include for software/OS based on the course that I will be following and coding along with as the course progresses. I can go with just about any format PC or version OS just want a reliable option that will not add be added burden to maintain.
