A great experiment with the way we teach computing has begun and we can't be sure how it will end." Mine's coming the week of May 21.

They thought about using built in flash, but they decided they didn't want something that was brickable.

I've never found programming languages to be a hassle in any of the Linux distros or FreeBSD. Generally, I install them, and they're ready to go. I've found installing programing languages in Windows to be a hassle, and I've found many an IDE to be a hassle.

You can do shell coding immediately after login in init 3 mode. You could probably setup a script to launch the python shell on login as other solution.
