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!
