I just saw my semester schedule. Apparently I will be forced to work with C# for Windows. I'm a Linux user
Moreover, virtual machines during exams is considered cheating. I don't dual-boot.
@fred Good luck :blobhiss:
@fred can't you ask them what can you do besides installing windows?
@tibike I can loan a computer, but I would hate to be using Windows during the semester.
@tibike my laptop should easily be able to handle a VM, especially with the new one I am considering getting.
@fred When I was in Denmark they let us use whatever. I said that I don't want to use 3DSMax or Maya and I was familiar with Blender when I had that class even though they had licences for them.
But i guess every uni is different. This was at KEA
@tibike a large part of what we do is group projects. I have a hard time even convincing my peers to use LaTeX.
@fred I know that feel...
I managed to get good peers and we divided the work pretty evenly back then.
@fred .net core is a thing. Also be sure to talk to your teachers as soon as possible. They could cut you some slack here and allow a different programming language or whatnot.
@newt one of the subjects is literally called Windows Communication Foundation
@fred again, talk to your teachers as soon as you can about this stuff.
@newt I tend to be vocal about these things.
