Brandon, frankly I’m astonished that OSU’s computer science folks aren’t using Linux for everything. I’ve never heard of a CS dept. that didn’t.
It was so weird when I took a C programming class and everything was done on Code Warrior, a proprietary IDE, using Windows. I mean c’mon, a department that teaches you to develop can’t touch its own operating system? That’s hypocrisy if I’ve ever seen it.
