Awww.... Man, Do I hafta?

Yes, you hafta! Many of the utilities that we use on a day to day basis run on UNIX, and as such, UNIX is necessary. However, at the moment, Windows is also necessary, because Applix only runs in IE, and I have yet to see (and I hope I never do) IE for *NIX (except for solaris, and we don't have it on campus). My advice is to learn to love it. And yes, I know that there is IE for Mac, but it's an abomination against nature <insert continued rant against Microsoft here>
