Linux "10 days? Well that hardly sounds hard enough! Sure, it doesn't sound so hard but take in account that over 500 million of us use a Windows OS at least once, everyday of the week and you too will see that going cold turkey from XP to KDE might be harder or more limiting than first thought."

Computer Science with a Windows 2000 only attitude, yeah I wonder how those kids can learn something I would like to call "comparative operating systems studies". Without comparing it will be difficult to really understand the benefits of your OS of choice. Comparing different possibilities and technologies is a Good Thing for CS students, and should be applauded. I wonder how much real knowlede such instructors really have.

It was more that they weren't allowed to install their own software on the computers, and the computers already had a paid for OS installed. After all, when asked, he was allowed to play with a livecd.

When did CS turn into a discipline for selecting personal desktop operating systems?
