SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I'm a huge nerd. Ok, now that that's out, heres my question: I was accepted for the comming year into my choice of schools cool. I've been busy getting everything ready. However I just heard something that made my heart drop- my school requires either a mac or windows computer! While I love mac and used to have a MBP, it broke a while back and I've been running Linux for years now (currently Ubuntu 11.10 + Gnome3 Shell). I would gladly buy a Mac- if I had the money. But I don't. Heres the thing.. I HATE Windows. Literally. Its buggy, slow, and insecure. I fear I don't have a choice! Does anybody know if its possible to keep Linux in school? I'd hate to pay 175 for Windows if I didn't have to.
