You do need to figure out a way to get Hotmail to format your mail body
a bit sensibly, it was the QuickQuote extension of Thunderbird that
allowed me to respond by quoting your mail (the alternative would have
been a huge single liner)

I get to hear this query often and the only thing I am sorely tempted to
ask is - step back and forget about Linux (for a moment). How good are
your fundamental programming skills ? Do you feel confident about your
C/C++ skills ? Or, perhaps you are competent in languages like Perl,
Python etc (Java even) ? If you are nodding assent to the queries, then
look around for projects that fit in with your BE level feasibility (I
don't really know what that means). I refer to existing projects in the
Free and Open Source world. While you are at it, I'd gently suggest that
you do a quick read through Producing Open Source Software
(producingoss.com) which will provide you an insight into how things
work in the Free and Open Source (FOSS) world, which might be a trifle
bit different from the methodology you are accustomed to.
