Im completing Masters of Computing at ANU part time, and definitely don't
agree with the view that Windows should be on the systems. As their is no
reason for it to be and I don't believe that its necessary for the courses,

courses/subjects should not depend on the use of particular applications or

I'm currently in first year at the ANU (hi Bob!) and on the computing  
forums there are quite a few people suggesting we should be running  
Windows in the IT labs because they feel uncomfortable with Linux and  
think Windows would be faster and easier.  Windows in the programming  
labs... WTF?!  I can't help feeling that if some of these people had  
been using Linux earlier it might be easier to make the adjustment.   
Or they might at least recognise that you won't always get what you  
want on someone else's computers.
