They what? I hope that's just the grumblings of the few and not a
serious proposal. If my application to start an undergraduate degree
at ANU DCS next year is successful, I'll certainly be hoping that
Linux continues to have a home there.

I can't imagine that the current staff would like to see a change to
Windows, but maybe that's because the only staff I meet are the pro
Linux (or MacOS) people.
