Linux or Windows ? - I've never set one up on Windows but any Linux distro will have one ( for a pure headless server I use Debian ) you need to generate some authorization keys and away you go - shout if you need any help.
Are there any communities around beginning ASP.NET/.NET Framework development?
Eventually, even in the ASP.NET course, I did need to use some jQuery for some form development. Not that big of a deal... But when I started getting into the jQUery/JS Ajax stuff while trying to send GET/POST requests to my own server to get my page data via JSON, I realized... Ok, I don't really know what Im doing with this jQuery and JS stuff.. Re-enter Free Code Camp... And my decision to finally tackle jQuery/JS. Free Code Camp has great lessons (for the most part, I do find some to be dry or inadequately explain information) and a very strong, helpful community but the biggest thing I've run into here is... Their program focusses on the MEAN stack... But I really like .NET. I enjoy C#, ASP.NET, SQL Server, and I spent a crap load of time learning it and would love to become a .NET web dev. But all of these code academies seem to be focused entirely on the non-Microsoft back-end technologies. So I'm like crap, do I put everything I just spent months learning aside now and go get node, MongoDB, and start all over or is there some sort of community like FCC but for .NET developers? How does one go from zero to hero using C#, the Razor engine, SQL Server, etc...?
My ultimate goal is to get a job as a web dev or do freelance and create products for people. I'm currently unemployed, so that's a reason why I'm trying to get all of this figured out sooner rather than later. Thanks.
I started the reverse way where the thing I wanted to do was build a web site. So I got the beginning ASP.net for beginners. If I had made it to the end of the book I would have been able to build a music site and still not know how to code. Then I got into desktop apps that I wrote apps for processing my own data and eventually hope to have everything with data that will work in the web site. So my advice if you want to do ASP.net is get good with your C# skills because you will need them in order to build a good site. Good Luck!

LOL, are you serious? Microsoft is the king of stability whereas anyone who has had the displeasure to work with open source knows how flaky, unreliable, badly documented and non-backwards compatible open source is.
