I'm talking about CE.
You will have to work a lot, I guess.
But if you are good, it may take only a few weeks.

For me, it wood take many many months, because I don't have
experience on that area.

I'll buy something with Linux already installed.
That way, I don't have to pay for MS OS I don't need.

There are several choices already.
Python is runnning on some of them, I think.
