Entering the world of datascience

I am hoping to learn more about the world of data science.  I'm going to focus on three different key areas: (1) statistics (2) programming and (3) subject matter expertise.

While I haven't decided which area I want to focus on subject matter wise, I do want to pick up the statistics that are needed to do the analysis and then the corresponding programming techniques that will help me apply the statistics.

I thought I'd start by downloading Oracle VM VirtualBox to start, as this will let me run Linux within my Windows workstation.  I also decided on using Debian as my Linux distribution.
