[GNUe] Beginner

Hi folks,

I'm an unexperienced programmer. I had some classes of programming at
college, learned some C and C++, but never went on with practicing in
a regular basis. As i was working as a sound technician, i never gave
too much attention to software developing. But life went on and i
decided to change my direction.

Right now, i need to implement an ERP and CRM in the Small Business
i´m woring in, using open source software. The first module i need to
implement is going to be my final project to get my graduate degree. I
have to do it fast... only 6 months to go.

I was researching the options available. and found the GNUe to be one
attractive, especially because i want to learn Python and i want to be
able to customize the software as much as possible. I am an free
software enthusiast and have always been a fan of GNU filosophy.

But, for my academic necessities right now, the other options in java
(as OpenBravo, ADempiere and OpenTaps), seem to have a more rich
documentation and more online support - altough i have no knowledge in
java and no great interest to learn it. The fact that GNUe offers more
support via IRC (and that´s blocked in my network at work) and not
from mailing seems a bit scaring to me - i'll check out if i can get
my machine liberated for IRC, altough as programming is not my main
job here, and i don't have internet connection at home (i'm completely
broke right now and going through financial difficulties). And i found
the online documentation very incomplete... I couldn't find out where
to start after reading the entire GNUe Common "Developers Guide"

If i didn't have the time constraint, i'd propbably choose GNUe, but
i'm getting worried if i will be able do finish it in time using
GNUe... I have little knowledge in databases, nor am i an experienced
programmer and i still have to learn python, but that seems more easy
than learning how to use GNUe. For instance, the really start of it
would be:

and it's 404 error (not found).

What are the binary executables for?? Are those Packages?? Where are
the Packages??

Well, you can see i'm lost. What do you recommend??
