But if windows is going to be more work and Linux does everything he
needs Linux is the right choice. If windows will be more work, but if
will help him be more efficient in school, the windows is the right
choice. In that context he will have given LInux an honest shot. I

I fight enough with professors over things (like yes backups really are
important) I don't feel like getting into a debate in my free time. Its
