QuoteOriginally posted by: outrunYes, thing are moving forward!I've picked the top one, the amazon Linux instance, 64 bit. I think this will be easiest to use, even for windows users. E.g. installing all the compiler tools is done with 3 lines of 3 words and it gives you very powerfull tools: more up to date and all for free. Also, the code you can run locally and on Amazon should be exacty the same, so you can do all the preparation locally.I've picked the "micro" instance for now, which is for free 750 hour / month in the first year,.. Great to learn it all for free.Well, "you" can do all the preparations/compiling/debugging locally, but not me, right? (now that you have switched to a Unix environment).The problem is that I was trying to follow along. So, now I can't.Or maybe I am missing something how about a Windows user with Visual Studio Express will use any of what you do fromthis point onward.If the answer is "you can't -- you will need to do all compiles remotely at amazon under Linux", I'm not sure that's workable for people like me. Debugging locally would seem necessary for this kind of thing.So, I think it is worth pausing here to explain how this is all going to work from the perspective of somebody whodoesn't have a local Linux box.
