It is not true that you must have Linux to contribute.  You can
contribute with Microsoft Windows, but you will need to find and use
development tools, such as Visual Studio Code; which is open source.

It is true that most of us can't or won't help you with tools that we
don't use.

Linux is a very good tool for coding, and you can get it on Windows if
you like.  Since most of us know Linux very well, and it is free, it
is a good choice to learn for the future.

But if you already know other tools, please use them ... but if the
other tools are not open source license, we can't recommend them.

Sugarizer works on Windows, as does Music Blocks.  Sugar does not work
on Windows, except in emulation.

You can find Sugarizer at http://sugarizer.org/, Music Blocks at
https://github.com/sugarlabs/musicblocks, and Sugar at

Hope that helps!
