Brother, I am with you.  :)

Unfortunately, I think "college" generally means *protection* from
Windoze that's absent in the "real world".  I came to Linux from a
Windows background (before Win95 - double yuck) and have not managed
to completely shake it for diverse reasons:

  1. Cable modem company requires it for their installation skit

  2. Digital camera provides no Linux driver (I have asked about one)

  3. At work, I have found no equivalent to MS Access for conveniently
     viewing and editing relational database contents.

Vive le Hurd!  Vive la FSF!
