This got me thinking about more I looked more deeply at what classes I have to take and what language they revolve around most and one is a Visual Basic class. So i have to Use windows (i think) at some point so Dual boot/VM is a must at least for a semester.
I feel Like we will use Google Docs or office 365 since the school seems to have a partnership with Microsoft for it ( i think most schools at least get a discount no idea). I think all students get MS Office and Office 365 for free or extremely cheap.
This is helpful I may call and ask the IT department some time after classes start this semester ( since i have to go to summer now for financial reasons). When I go for summer orientation i will see if I have issues then and make adjustments to my plans from the information gathered.
Alright, my school seems to have a tool to check your browser for compatibility problems with the site. So for instance firefox just does not work with the site at all, it breaks a lots of the site and tells me to use edge or chrome. So hopefully that will help with that problem. It checks for flash and a few other things.
This took me about 6 hours to ask because I felt like the answer should already be out there, but after researching it for a few hours, I seen lots of information that was either from 10 years ago or post that turned into distro wars after someone mentioned anything about changing distros.
The best part of Linux so far to me isn’t privacy or freedom or customization it is how passionate the community seems to be behind it.
