I currently can't get linux on my computer because I have Windows 8 pre-installed. Can I still "do" or learn to code on "Git Bash"? Why is it that many people recommend Linux. I used to have Linux before too. Also, just for testing, I cloned
Code:
git clone git://github.com/eagleeyetom/android_packages_apps_Settings.git -b gingerbread
Everything thing went successfully, and to make changes would I really have to make a github account? Also, since I cloned it, does it save to somewhere on my computer? And where can I check? Thanks.

Well for one thing you can install linux over windows, side by side actually if you have enough space you could split it and dual boot, they're kept separate and you pick which one you load up upon booting the pc. Or you could you wubi and install ubuntu inside windows, but that would be like using a virtual machine and cause it to be very slow especially compiling roms.

And you don't need an account to edit the files locally, when you clone remember the location your cloning to as the files will be there inside the name of the repo they're from.

You don't understand, It's difficult to get Linux working on a pre-installed Windows 8 machine. And yeah I have made separate partitions to install Ubuntu/etc. I don't want to have a virtual box machine either. And what? You confused me a little to where the files are saved.

Nvm I found it. I never specified where I wanted to save it, so by default it was on (C) drive. Thanks.

Thanks to the OP for this thread too. I am now on github helping with grammar issues and translation problems. Not other things because I do not know how to code yet!

Re: [Guide] How to use Github
You cant just jump linux updates. You need to patch them incrementally from linux.org
