Linux Updated

I managed to get Oracle VirtualBox installed successfully and the Debian Linux distribution as well.  I had to do some additional work, like install pip, sudo, git and update my user id, but the installation was relatively smooth.

Based on what I've read, it seems like the python libraries that data scientists use tend to work with python 2.7 - so while inclination might say go with the latest and greatest - do stick with python 2.7 - it may change in the future, but for now this seems like the version to go with.

Next up - going to start organizing my projects and start using git.
